Cause and Effect is a huge part of the Common Core when teaching with informational and nonfiction text. I was having a hard time finding close reading passages with good cause and effect relationships that related to the real world so I decided to create my own! This packet would be good for 3rd, 4th, and maybe 5th grade depending on your kids levels. You could even try it with high flying 2nd graders.
In this packet you will find:
~3 Close Reading Passages with Cause and Effect Questions and lots of Writing (Topics: Thanksgiving, Hurricane Sandy,& MLK Jr.)
~Assessment (Corn Flakes)
Hope you find the passages meaningful for your students!
Thanks for visiting my little shop. Happy Teaching!
