($) The Puzzling Main Idea contains directions and materials needed for 5 different Main Idea Activities. They are tons of fun, hands-on, and a perfect continuation to Main Idea mini-lessons! The activities encourage whole class, partner/group, and independent work/critical thinking! If followed in order, the activities teach Main Idea first in a more concrete manner, allowing children to slowly be able to apply their new skills to more difficult tasks, and eventually to text.

BLIND DATE WITH A BOOK: Love this idea to teach kids giving a book a chance. "Blind Date with a Book" Activity for independent reading. Wrap up books and decorate with key words that relate to each. Students pick a book, unwrap it, record it and read for 30 pages. Good date=keep it, finish it, review it. Bad date=return it, and write about why it wasn't the book for you. Great "get to know yourself as a reader" activity! I am SO doing this!

Trace the "Steps" to the American Revolution-- Could definitely be used for the Civil War unit or other units. One idea- assign each student an event to research. Have them copy their foot on a piece of paper and then use the feet to form a timeline.

Folders at a cooperative learning table with review questions inside-- can put text in to review, maybe even put in specific types of ACT prep questions for each table?
