When you notice a CAUSE and EFFECT connection that excites you, write about it or take a photo and record your thoughts. You might want to tell about the EFFECT that you are excited about on the bottom of this activity and then think back to what happened before, that might have been the CAUSE, and tell about that on top. (Remember that the letter C comes before the letter E in the alphabet. The Cause happens before the Effect.) Example... Cause: I used my math strategies. Effect: I figured out the answer to a difficult problem.
