Product Description
This Cause and Effect PowerPoint goes over the steps students should take to find the cause and effect of a sentence. The PowerPoint is acceptable for 2nd through 6th grade. The PowerPoint also features highlighted text for the key vocabulary: cause (red) and effect (yellow) which allows students to keep the concepts apart from one another and is wonderful for ELL students.

The middle of the PowerPoint features an interactive game the students can play on the smart-board to touch or simply to answer and click. The PowerPoint asks the students to say whether the underlined part of the sentence is the cause or the effect. It also allows the students to go back and change their answer if they get it incorrect.

The PowerPoint also has a read aloud section which instructs the teacher to read If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff. This book is read to the students and then cause and effects that appear in the book are given as examples on the PowerPoint. Students then have some writing tasks to complete on the PowerPoint such as writing the effect for a given cause, the cause for a give effect and finally creating their own cause and effect sentences

After the students have practiced finding the cause and effect using the PowerPoint, then they can be given the activity sheets to help them work on writing the cause and effect as independent practice. This is a great test preparation skill that will help the students' reading and writing abilities.
