Cause and Effect

Hi Everyone,

Today we worked on cause and effect. In social studies we are learning about Native Americans and focusing on the Northwest and Southwest Regions. We will soon read a complex text about the Northwest. Before we read, I thought it was important to discuss CAUSE and EFFECT. Students may have a diffcult time comprehending the text without understanding what cause and effect means.

Students grouped in pairs read short passages and had to respond what the cause and effect was through Padlet. Padlet is a virtual wall that allows people to express their thoughts on a common topic easily. It works like an online sheet of paper where people can put any content (e.g. images, videos, documents, text) anywhere on the page, together with anyone, from any device.

We are only in the beginning stages of the activity but please see some of their ideas below.

Thank you!
