Main Idea and Norman Rockwell

This is one of my most favorite lessons for teaching main idea.  The kids love it and they stay engaged to see what the next painting is going to be.  We discuss that titles of paintings usually state the main idea of a painting. We list as many details as we can for each painting.  Then we decide what the main idea would be based on all of the details we discussed.  Afterwards, move the magnifying glass to uncover the title of each painting.  Compare the students response with Rockwell's title.  How do they can compare?  Have fun!  You can find it here!
