To work on cause and effect, my students got to get up and moving! We broke into two teams (Red & Blue) and got into a line, facing the whiteboard. Each student had the opportunity to write one word to expand the sentence. Here is an example from each team: "Jill had a baby, so she bought diapers. Kayla fell down a slide, sho she get woodchips on her knee."
This activity is quick and easy-they love it & were begging to do more!
