Cause and Effect

We are studying ‘Cause and Effect’ while reading about Martin Luther King.

Often cause and effect relationships are signaled by words and phrases such as: 

sosinceas a resultbecause, and therefore.


  • Cause & Effect at the Studyzone – great information about the difference between cause & effect.  NY State website
  • The Sun & Wind Story at the Studyzone-  does this story make sense?  Why not?  Read all the way through it!
  • The Ant & the Grasshopper: a fable- can you find the correct sequence and cause-effect connection?
