Cause and Effect



A couple of weeks ago we did our plant unit.  Since we did the ole lima bean experiment, I decided to read the story A Bad Case of Stripes and do a cause and effect lesson I saw here.  If you’ve never read the book it’s about a little girl who loves lima beans but refuses to eat them because she is afraid of what her friends will think.

After a couple of days of practice with cause and effect (Amelia Bedelia books are great for this)  I read the book.  As I did we made a chart of all the causes and effects we heard in the story.  Then I had my 2nd grader write a summary using the cause and effects.  She did a great job!!

I made this poster to help them.
