    Cause and Effect
    By Mrs. G

    Clip to ScrapBook
    This is a cause and effect activity that could be used with many novel units. It works well with Dear Mr. Henshaw.

    Create two sets of sentence strips. One set with "causes" from the story and the other set with the "effects" to the cause you wrote. You will want to do enough strips so that every student gets either a cause or an effect. Pass out the strips to the students and tell them they have to find the person that has either the cause or the effect to their strip. Once they have found their match they should line up in the front of the room and when everyone has found their match you can lead a discussion and go over the answers orally to make sure the answers are correct.

    For example on one sentence strip you would write. Someone keeps stealing Leigh's lunch. On another you would write. Leigh builds a lunch box alarm. These two would match up together.
