Product Description
A three-column puzzle teaches the concept of cause, effect, and solution through inquiry and application instead of a lecture or worksheet.Topics include natural disasters to entice reluctant readers.The close-reading task and informational text are designed specifically to fit common core shifts.

Students cut out the puzzle pieces, then compare the sentences to decide which is the cause, which is the effect, and which is the solution for a problem. The puzzle could be taped, stapled, glued, or copied into a notebook. Students could work alone, in partners or groups, or at a literacy center.

Here are some extension/adaptation ideas:
-- Just want to teach cause and effect? Simply leave out the solution pieces and the puzzle will still work.
-- After completing the puzzle, have students combine the sentences to write a cause/effect/solution paragraph
-- Have students research and make their own puzzle pieces
-- Make this a whole-class activity by giving each student a piece and having them move around the room to complete the puzzle

Designed for middle school ELL and dual ELL/SpEd students, but could be used for upper elementary grades, too. This is a two-page word document that includes a key.
