This resource can be used to refresh your students or give them practice cause and effect. The first page allows them to complete the problem. They need to identify whether or not the given statement is the cause or effect in the situation. In the second column, they need to give the cause or effect to finish the first column. Some answers could be argued one way or the other--which is part of the fun. For example, if a man steals post-its from his office, this could be the cause of his being fired, or the effect of him being mad at his boss. The assignment can create discourse in the classroom and allow students to think outside of the box.
The second sheet allows students to find examples of cause and effect in a text. This can be used with novels, or short informational, fiction or non-fiction texts.
