This is a very simple, detailed lesson on how to combine dependent and independent clauses in various ways. Each slide highlights a rule and has an example of a correctly combined sentence. Sentences are written in accord with an interesting picture that creates interest. At the end of the lesson, students are challenged to create their own sentences using the rules and weird pictures to stimulate thinking. *A sentence combining worksheet is available in my store to accompany this PowerPoint for a later reinforcement exercise.
