Is it a phrase or a clause? Have students practice the difference between these two grammar ideas in a fun, colorful way. Students will color the phrases one color and clauses another.
These phrases and clauses are difficult for elementary students and in the zone of proximal development for middle schoolers. Students have to understand subordinates and dependent clauses to master this worksheet.
I typically use this worksheet as guided practice during my pull-outs, but I have used it for homework with my 7th graders.
