As a whole group we discussed and charted the difference between main ideas and details. I read several excerpts from nonfiction bat books and had students pair-share as to whether examples I read were main ideas or details. After visual and oral practice it was on to the craftivity.
I have continued to use this same format with the recording sheet that is included in the pack. I am so impressed with the fabulous work my students continue to produce.
