“Main Idea” (YouTube)
Instructions: Begin at the top of the page with the first lesson that gives examples of main ideas. Complete each of the activities that follow, moving down the page in the order that the videos are presented. Once you have completed each video lesson, practice your main idea comprehension skills by completing the “Main Idea Worksheet” that is provided at the end of the tutorial.
After completing these activities, look back at the text that we started with in this subunit, “The Seafloor.” In your notebook, make a bulleted list of the main ideas that you identified after reading that informational text.
Watching this lesson and taking optional notes should take approximately 30 minutes.
