This main idea and detail activities includes all of my SETS of Main Idea and Details sorts. Each set has 20 paragraphs.
**Updated to also INCLUDE DIGITAL (Google Slides for Google Classroom) version of every sentence sort**
Peek at how the digital version works here.
Students will read the each of the five sentences for the paragraph and determine which one is the main idea and which four are the supporting details. Students will sort the sentences on their main idea and details mat. Download the preview file to learn more and to see extension ideas for older students!
