Teach/Model: Today I am going to teach you to identify the cause by asking yourself the question why did it happen? And the effect asking what happened? Watch me as I read this informational text and ask myself the question why did it happen, and then when I answer that question I have identified the cause and then I am going to ask what happened and I am going to answer that question to identify the effect.
