Reflection: Lesson Planning Links in a Chain: Creating a Cause and Effect Gallery - Section 3: Displaying the Chains


I've never taught this lesson before and overall it went ok.  There was a lot of struggle with the chain reaction idea.  I probably need to spend more time on that next time, but what I think the students did get was a bridge that I've never built for them before.  I think they got an extra step in analyzing cause and effect before they had to actually write a cause and effect story themselves.  Working on how a cause is a cause and then can become an effect is something I've always skipped over.  I think this is the link that can put it all together for my students!!
