Finding the Main Idea
The Jungle Book
by Rudyard Kipling
Rudyard Kipling’s book, The Jungle Book,
Book is a collection of short stories about
India. In this passage from “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi,” a young and curious mongoose named
Rikki-tikki-tavi has found a new home with an English boy, Teddy, and his family.
Rikki-Tikki-Tavi
He spent all that day roaming over the house. He nearly drowned himself in
the bathtubs, put his nose into the ink on a writing table, and burned it on the end
of the big man’s cigar, for he climbed up in the big man’s lap to see how writing
was done. At nightfall he ran into Teddy’s nursery to watch how kerosene lamps
were lighted, and when Teddy went to bed Rikki-tikki climbed up too. But he was a
restless companion, because he had to get up and attend to every noise all through
the night, and find out what made it.
Write the main idea of the paragraph in the large oval below. Write the
supporting ideas in the small ovals.
