Set 1: All game cards should be placed in a pile. Students take turns choosing the top card from the pile and read or listen to the sentence. Students need to decide whether the underlined part of the sentence is the cause or effect. If answered correctly, the student rolls the die and moves on the game board.
Set 2: Place all “pirate” and “treasure chest” cards on table. Students take turns matching the correct cause to its effect. Once correctly matched, students should combine the two phrases into a sentence. The student with the most correct matches wins!
