NOTE: If you have a discoveryeducation.com account, please access the "pyramid plunder" video to help reinforce this lesson. It is not necessary but fun to have.

I used this lesson to help reinforce our lesson on main idea and details. Students were able to use the interactive board to share answers with the class.

I am in Florida so the tips I am using reflect my state's tips for finding main idea and details and have been specifically chosen from our Sharpen Up! workbooks.

My students have the concept

My students have the concept of the main idea but seem to have difficulties with mixing up details with the main idea. I am looking forward to utilizing this with them. Thanks for the lesson and I will also use your suggestion for the pyramid plunder on discoveryeducation.com.
