This activity is for beginning students of English as a Second or Foreign Language. It includes a beautiful 14 slide PowerPoint presentation of nouns in nature using my own colorful photographs.
It includes the definition of common nouns and proper nouns with example sentences and the different spelling rules for plural forms with examples. There are 4 photographs on each page with multiple nouns and an extra line for students to write a sentence using these nouns to describe what they see in each picture. Please print out this PowerPoint presentation (Portrait Orientation) as a handout for students to follow in class.
There is an additional writing assignment at the end of the PowerPoint with 3 questions for students to answer:
a) How important is nature to you? Why?
b) Where is the most beautiful place in your country to experience nature?
c) What are some things that people can do to help nature?
There are also 2 worksheets with 3 activities: a) write the plural forms b) fill in the blanks to complete the sentences and c) put the nouns in the correct category (common nouns or proper nouns). The answer key pages are included.
