Use these 8 story task cards to help your students gain confidence in understanding and identifying cause and effect relationships in an informational text. There is an answer sheet and answer key so students can check their own work. There are two challenge cards included with three activities on each card to deepen understanding and extend learning. There is one poster on cause and effect and two different graphic organizers. These are a great visual resource for students to reference. You can use this product as a center activity or a whole-class lesson. My students especially enjoy working on these task cards with a partner or in a small group.
