Cause & Effect

Well...it's about time that I start blogging again. I used to blog on our laptop, but the letter I key stopped working! Every time I tried to type the letter "I" I would have to cut and paste it from somewhere...hahaha! So you may find that some of my documents are missing an I here and there. :)

Around Christmas time we were learning about cause and effect. I came across an AMAZING blog (The First Grade Parade) and was inspired to adapt her activities for third grade. I introduced cause and effect with dominoes. After reading and discussing "If You Take A Mouse to the Movies", we completed a cause and effect sort. Later we watched popcorn pop and discovered what caused popcorn to pop. Another great book addition to this lesson was The Popcorn Book by Tomie dePaola (one of my all time favorite authors!)

The best popcorn popper for this activity! The kids are able to see the oil sizzle and the popcorn kernels pop.

  7. Mrs. Lewis, like the above blog followers, I LOVE your idea on the cause and effect lesson; however, the link is broken and I would absolutely LOVE to have the "matching/sorting" activity/lesson plans you have put together! Thank you so much!
