Cause and Effect

Clip to ScrapBook #3

I start my lesson by doing a couple of demonstrations in front of the class. I walk through the room reading and kick over the trash can. I find a new balloon, then I blow it up, then I pop it with a pin. I set up some dominos and then I bump the table. At this point we discuss what happened and why. I then read If You Give A Mouse a Cookie or one in that series. As a class we make a list of all the cause & effects found in the story. I have a PowerPoint that we watch that explains cause & effect. It also has several examples that the kids figure out either the cause or the effect. The next day we review the concept and then we play a "I Have, Who Has" game that I made up. I find that using a demonstration gets their attention and I can go from there. I hope this helps.
