Understanding Cause and Effect

I am so excited to share this FREE reading resource to help your students understand cause and effect and be able to distinguish the difference between them!

Understanding cause and effect can be a challenge for upper elementary students! That is why I do so many practice activities with my students to help them truly grasp this reading text structure.

This FREE set includes everything you need to easily plan and teach students about cause and effect and help your students succeed:

  • Interactive digital AND printable versions
  • Anchor charts to guide your mini-lessons
  • Student reference page for student notebooks or folders
  • Graphic organizers to scaffold instruction and to use with ANY reading text
  • Practice sorts
  • Discussion cards
  • Reading article for independent practice
  • PLUS my favorite cause and effect illustration activity!

Your students will LOVE the cause and effect illustration activity, plus it is so easy to use!
Simply pass out the blank cause and effect anchor chart page and have students illustrate a scene with a cause and with its matching effect. Have students share their work with a reading partner or the class and discuss which is the cause and which is the effect. These make the cutest display in your reading corner, too!
