Our Cause and Effect lesson plan teaches students about cause and effect, including how to identify it in written material and how to employ it in their own writing. Students are asked to work collaboratively on an activity in which they create 10 different events or actions, which are causes and 10 different effects of those causes and then use their presentation skills to share them with the class. Students are also asked to write short stories which clearly show a cause and an effect.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify the cause and effect of actions and events presented in sentences, paragraphs, and other reading content. The students will also be able to write sentences/paragraphs using causes and effects.
