Cause and effect chains! So. Much. Fun. I gave each pair of students one event to begin with (the green loop). They had to turn it into a cause and effect chain. I gave them a certain amount of time and made it into a little competition. It was a blast!
Wow! The students are really engaged! Free! Cause and Effect activity to go with the book, "Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type".
When teaching reading (or any subject area), you always have to approach the reading skill of cause and effect. It's a difficult concept for students! Check out these activities and ideas to help your students learn about cause and effect!
