In reading we are learning about cause and effect.
“Cause is the reason (why something happens), and effect is the result (what happened)”
We watched news reports on BTN to practice identifying the cause and effect in different situations around the world.
Cause: Hawaii’s volcano erupted
Effect: Destroyed homes and cars, and people had to evacuate
Cause: Bad storm in Hobart
Effect: Formed a flood and swept people and property away
Cause: Australia joined the National Space Agency
Effect: More jobs for Australians in the space department
