Activity Overview


Learning how to identify the main idea in a selection of text is an important skill for students to master. If readers are not careful, they can miss important information, plot advancements, or more. In this activity, students will identify main ideas and symbols from the story, and support their choices with details from the text.

Give your students selections from the text to illustrate. Using the grid layout or the traditional storyboard, students will recreate the text with a picture and one or two sentences that capture the main idea of the selection.

Three main ideas from The Third Wish are:

  1. Mr. Peters frees the swan from the thorny tangle. This is the task he completes to “earn” his three wishes.
  2. Mr. Peters realizes that it is hopeless to expect that Leita will ever become truly happy as a human. He decides to wish her back to being a swan.
  3. The mournful sound of two swans is Leita and her sister. They are singing because Mr. Peters has died.
