Cause and effect articles! This packet includes everything you need to introduce students to the text structure of cause and effect in expository texts.
Introduce cause and effect through a fun and simple card activity. Then, help students to see how causes and effects can be shown in texts. Multiple texts at different levels are included to help you differentiate for different readers. A PowerPoint for struggling readers and ELL students helps to make causes and effects concrete.
