Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Teachers: You can either have students choose their own main idea and come up with the details, or you might give students the main idea on a sticky note and they come up with the details. - Another way you can use this activity is to not have students write what their main idea is, and have their classmates try to guess in the comments. This is my preferred way of using this activity.
