Product Description
Do your students struggle with identifying causes and effects within the stories they read, like my students often do?

Here's a hands-on, creative way for your students to practice identifying the causes and effects within fiction and nonfiction passages! This is an engaging activity where your students read three fiction passages and three nonfiction passages on a worksheet. They identify one cause and its effect within the passage. The finished products make a unique bulletin board or fun school hallway display! It can also be used as a novel entry in an interactive notebook!

This product also includes a BONUS TEACHING POSTER! The poster explains how the cause always happens first, and the effect happens next, much like you blow a bubble first, and then the bubble pops next. I designed this activity to help my students understand the relationships between causes and effects. After completing this activity, students have a visual connection in their schema that will hopefully allow them to remember how to identify causes and effects. (I stress to my students that they cannot just look at the order the statements occur in the paragraphs!! They have to ASK THEMSELVES, "Which HAPPENED first?")

It also includes an additional "warm-up" worksheet. Students identify the cause and effect within sentences. (Some of my students needed this additional practice before they were ready to tackle the more complex skill of identifying causes and effects within reading passages.)

Check out the preview for a better look at this product!

Student-friendly directions are included so that you can place the directions under your document camera, and students can refer to them as they complete the project. (An answer key is also included.)
