The cause and effect matching cards and task cards are an effective and flexible resource you can use to differentiate instruction for a variety of learners. That's 2 resources for the price of 1! The matching cards (12 cause, 12 effect) can be used to play memory match with a small group, used to match up random partners, or to create a visual display. The task cards are great to have on hand as an extension activity for early finishers, a remediation activity, and as a resource for multi-age and ability groups, and to play Scoot. Project the task cards for whole group and/or small group mini-lessons and practice, or use the printer friendly version to save your ink. You can also use the included safari-themed "SCOOT" board to assess knowledge of cause and effect quickly.

Updated to add: this set now includes a set of Boom Cards for an interactive learning experience for your students. Teachers will need to create a free account at to redeem their Boom cards.

These materials are classroom-tested, and have been used for years with my intervention students in grades 2-5, as well as in my 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms. Please contact me with any questions!
