    Cause and effect activity
    By Tracy

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I use this activity to reinforce cause and effect with my 4th graders. I begin with an effect, then I choose one student to give the cause. This cause now becomes the new effect and another student is chosen to give the cause of that effect. For example, I might say,"I heard a loud noise." I would then choose a student and he may say, "because a book dropped." Then the next student would say, "because the shelf was loose." So the cause of every sentence becomes the effect. It also teaches that some effects can also be causes. Hope this helps.
