Looking for a way to practice critical reading skills? This product integrates both science content and cause and effect skills about two high-interest topics: earthquakes and volcanoes. The product was designed based on a Harcourt passage about the topics, but could be used with any science textbook as a way of assessing knowledge. The earthquake board covers the 8 steps to an earthquake while the volcano board covers the 4 steps to a volcanic eruption as well as the cause of Shield Volcanoes and Stratovolcanoes. This could also make a fun review activity for teams before a test. Just laminated and cut this product apart, for a reading skill station to use for years to come.
