Review the concept of Cause and Effect with group.

Build schema by discussing cause and effect relationships. Begin by
offering an example of cause-effect event such as if youre walking
down the street and you step on a patch of ice and fall, you can say
that the ice caused you to fall and the fall was the effect or result of
the ice. Next, practice identifying cause and effect with example
causes and effects on the board. Ask students to give examples of
causes and effects.

Learning Activities:
5-7 minutes

10-15 minutes
Afterwards, ask students if they are able to identify any cause and

something after it. It varies by person and situation.
