Main Idea Tree

Main Idea Graphic Organizer

Use this image of a large tree to help your students understand the components of a paragraph. With this worksheet, students will be asked to write a main idea and follow it with three supporting details. What a great way for students to visualize the importance of the main idea in a paragraph! This activity is great for use both at home and in the classroom.  Ideal for 3rd-5th Grade, but can be used where appropriate.
