A cause and effect activity asks students to examine how the sequence of an event can lead to specific consequences or results. Students should be able to understand and explain the relationship between the two. For this activity, students will complete a cause and effect analysis for Fish In a Tree. They will not only define the event and the consequences, but outline the logical reasons for why the consequences occur. Teachers can modify and customize the worksheets to add as little or as much information as they would like. The worksheets can be completed digitally or printed out and completed by hand.
