Determining cause and effect is an important skill across the subjects. Why not apply that skill to your science lessons? Students can use this hands-on, differentiated sorting activity to review cause and effect relationships related to weather phenomena. This differentiated critical thinking activity is great to use for review or even assessment at the end of your weather unit!

This resource includes a hands-on printable version as well as a digital version in Google Slides™. Use in your classroom or for distance learning! Please note that you will need a Google account to use the paperless version.

There are two versions included in this activity:

  1. Students cut apart the sorting cards and match each cause with its effect. They can glue the pairs on the provided worksheet when finished. Alternatively, you can laminate the sorting cards for long-term use in a center.
  2. Students fill in the blanks to complete the cause-and-effect worksheet.

Answer keys are included.

Concepts include:

high and low air pressure, stratus cloud, tornado, barometer, anemometer, drought

This resource supports Virginia Science SOL 4.4, but is applicable to any classroom.
