What’s The Main Idea?
My son was asked in school to indentify the ‘main idea’ in the paragraph below. The teacher’s answer surprised me. What do you think the right answer is?
Maya is a vegetarian. Vegetarians get most of the energy they need from plants. Most people eat animal products, too. Maya eats many fruits, vegetables, nuts, and beans. She also eats grains, such as bread, rice, and pasta. Foods from plants are good for your health.
