Using Casue and Effect to Make Connections
Cause and effect relationships can be seen across the curriculum and throughout daily life. The cross-curricular activities and reading selections in this book help students make critical connections between an action and its effect. The activities in Cause & Effect for grades 1-2 allow students to progress from recognizing cause and effect in art and in writing to writing cause and effect statements. Not only are these skills valuable for reading comprehension, but they also help students understand that actions have consequences.
