PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Looking for a fun and engaging way to teach the Cause and Effect Nonfiction Text Structure? Well, then you AND your students are going to love this Doodle and Do resource. First students “DOODLE” as they complete sketch notes about the cause and effect nonfiction text structure. Then, students “DO” six engaging interactive notebook activities to showcase their understanding of the nonfiction text structure.

Since the doodle notes encourage students to color, doodle, and/or embellish their notes as they learn, they are able to increase their retention of the material. Then, they can take their learning to a new level as they progress through engaging activities that help them develop, showcase, and master their understanding of the Cause and Effect Nonfiction Text Structure. This resource will take at least 3 days to complete.

Great News! This resource is a part of the Nonfiction Text Structures Interactive Notebook Mini-Unit Bundle! The bundle includes Doodle and Do mini-units for each Nonfiction Text Structure: Problem and Solution, Compare and Contrast, Cause and Effect, Description, and Chronological Order.


About the “Doodle” Notes:

Students will develop an understanding of the Cause and Effect Nonfiction Text Structure first by completing a set of doodle notes. Doodle notes are color-it-in, fill-it-in, and doodle-encouraging note sheets. They’re not only visually engaging, they’re also effective in helping students increase their focus and ability to recall information. Plus…they’re really fun! Students glue their doodle notes into their interactive notebooks. In this resource, there are 2 options of Doodle Notes:

• Option 1: All the notes are filled in. With this option students will color, embellish, and add doodles to the notes as you review the information with the class.

• Option 2: Some of the notes are filled in and students need to fill in the remainder of the notes (like guided notes). Students will work to fill in the notes as you teach the content.


About the “Do” Activities

After students complete their Doodle Notes it’s time for them to “Do” some fun interactive notebook activities. The activities are designed around lessons to help students deepen their understanding of the Cause and Effect Nonfiction Text Structure. There are six activities in all:

• Doodle a Cause: Students carry the doodle concept into the first activity when they create doodles that may cause certain reactions (shown by emoji faces).

• Cause and Effect Matching: Students practice the skill of identifying causes and effects as they identify and match 4 sets of causes and effects.

• Cause and Effect Search: Students read a series of sentences. Then, they identify the cause, effect, and signal words in each sentence.

• Cause and Effect Text Structure Reading 1: Students read a passage using the cause and effect text structure and then complete a graphic organizer.

• Cause and Effect Text Structure Reading 2: Students read a passage using the cause and effect text structure and then complete a graphic organizer.

• Cause and Effect Text Structure Writing: Students complete 2 writing activities. First, they finish writing a passage that provides them with the cause. Then, they complete another writing passage that provides them with the effect.
