Product Description
This lesson focuses on the ways that Illinois has changed over time, through a series of important events that caused these changes. Students will be able to relate cause and effect relationships to Illinois history.

Each student will need a copy of the article, Illinois: A Growing and Changing State. Additionally, they will need 2 different colors of highlighters (or markers/crayons) to identify the causes and effects throughout the article. An annotated copy of the article is available for teacher reference.

This article could be read multiple times, in whole group or small group instruction, but it is important that the teacher monitor that students are correctly identifying the cause and effect historical relationships throughout.

In the second part of the lesson, students will review the main causes and effects that were introduced through the article in the last lesson.

Students will still need their (now highlighted) copies of the article, Illinois: A Growing and Changing State, for reference.

Students will also be making a Cause and Effect Foldable to reinforce the cause and effect relationships being taught. This should likely be completed in a whole group setting. Students will need a flat page to fit the pieces of this foldable in their notebooks.

After completing the foldable, students can take the 5 Question Quick Check for this lesson. Teachers can decide if students can use their interactive notebooks as reference or not. An Answer Key for the Quick Check is available here.
