*ADJECTIVES & ADVERBS WORKSHEET

*AUTHOR'S PURPOSE WORKSHEET

The last two lines are for students to write their own examples of figurative language.
*INTERNET SCAVENGER HUNT WORKSHEET
This is an internet scavenger hunt for secondary students.
It provides websites to visit, where students must read through the text in order to find the answers. The students will then write down the answers on the lines, and will figure out the code. Once they've answered all the questions, they'll be able to figure out the final question at the bottom of the page.
The first page is the worksheet, then the second is the answer key.
**Please be aware that the reading passages are typically at a 6th-9th grade level**
*PRONOUNS & ANTECEDENTS WORKSHEET
For the top of the worksheet (10 sentences), students must read each sentence, then underline the pronoun and circle the antecedent
For the bottom of the worksheet (5 sentences), students must write a sentence using the pronoun and antecedent they are given.
*TRIVIA CHALLENGE WORKSHEET
Students will have to use their knowledge of Earth Day (and probably some help from the internet) to answer 15 trivia questions. Once they've answered all of the questions, they will be able to unscramble the final answer to the question at the bottom of the page.
**Each worksheet has an answer key included.
