This unit is packed with LOTS of engaging centers and quick, no-prep printables. Cause and effect is such a fun unit, especially with amazing read aloud opportunities available. Check out what all is included below and click the green preview button above to see what it looks like!
CAUSE AND EFFECT TASK CARDS:
There are many ways to use task cards with your students. Print on cardstock for durability and laminate. These task cards show a sentence and ask the student to determine the cause or the effect. 1) Tape them around the room and give each students a recording sheet. Play a fun game of "Scott" where students scoot around to each card to solve. 2) Have students in a small group center where students draw a card and record their answers. 3) Place the cards on the document camera for the whole class to see and work out the situations together! This set of task cards is provided in full color as well as blackline for easy printing. A recording sheet and answer key are provided.
IF YOU GIVE A... MATCHING GAME
There are two sets of cards with this game. One set goes with the book "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" by Laura Numeroff. The other, the situations are not from a book and students must read and determine which Cause Card goes with which Effect Cards. The "CAUSE CARDS" are labeled with a C and have an "EFFECT CARD" match labeled with an E. The card sets are labeled with numbers in the corner of the cards.
WHAT WOULD HAPPEN? BOARD GAME
To play this game, students place their game piece (included, or you can use something else) on START. They take turns rolling a die and moving spaces. The space they land on will tell them which spinner to spin. Using a paperclip and a pencil, spin the spinner you landed on. Read the situation on the spinner and come up with a creative cause or effect to go with it. The first person to reach FINISH wins!
CAUSE AND EFFECT SORTING STRIPS
For this activity, students read sentences and then sort them based on the portion of the sentence that is highlighted. Sorting mats have been provided as well as a recording sheet and answer key.
INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOK PAGES (3 ACTIVITIES)
Do you use an interactive notebook? They hold some of the most effective activities I have ever done with my students, so included here are a few pages to go in an INB for cause and effect. These activities can also be completed individually outside of a notebook. Only blackline included. Photo instructions on assembly provided.
Sometimes you just need something quick. These blackline printables are great for morning work, homework, early finishers, or sub plans. Included are a fill in the blank activity, a cause web, an effect web, and a cause/effect mini book.
