  • Think Aloud: The word because in the first sentence is a cause and effect clue word. The first part of the sentence tells the effect: Prairie dogs live in large groups. The cause is that prairie dogs need a way to survive.
  • Reread and find another cause and effect clue word and identify the next cause and effect in the paragraph.
  • Clue word is “if.”
comprehension strategy use graphic organizers
Comprehension Strategy: Use Graphic Organizers
  • As you read, you should record the information from the text and organize it in a graphic organizer such as a chart or diagram.
  • Graphic organizers will help you understand how concepts fit together and remember the information later.
  • When reading nonfiction text, you should first identify the text structure, such as cause and effect, and then select the appropriate graphic organizer to keep track of the information.

Use sequence charts to organize the order of events in a selection.

Use a cause and effect diagram to keep track of causes and effects in texts.

Use a Venn diagram to show how things are alike and different.

Use a web to list details related to a main idea or important concept.


The word because in the second sentence is a clue word that often signals a cause and effect relationship.

The graphic organizer that should be used with this passage is a cause and effect diagram.

The cause is “predators might be nearby”, and the effect is “the jackrabbit is alert as it eats.”

The words “as a result” signal another cause and effect relationship –

“the snake leaves when the jackrabbit kicks it.”
