These printable, reading comprehension activities are based on my best selling Cause and Effect Game. With the fun theme of Thanksgiving, the children are able to focus on the comprehension skills of identifying causes and effects, together with creating their own possible effects for already stated causes. So, three different reading comprehension games in one thematic packet!
There are 20 cause and effect cards for reading and matching. These are color-coded to show differentiation in the text. The activity which involves creating your own effect has 24 cards. I like to copy and laminate the cards so that the kids can write directly on the cards with dry erase felt markers over and over again.
I have used this activity with 3rd and 5th grade guided reading groups and as literacy centers activities. They align with the CCSS ELA standards for non-fiction skills.
Please feel free to let me know your thoughts on this product so that I may constantly be improving my work for you.
