We all know how dull and boring those text book example sentences can be! In order to take some of the monotony out of these assignments and assessments, I try to make my own resources with interesting topics when I want my students to identify parts of speech or types of sentences. Although the content may not be the most exciting, the students remember and enjoy reading these interesting sentences!
In this assignment, the student becomes part of a funny story in which he or she must protect the town of Brainville from a zombie invasion. In the first part of the assignment, the student will identify whether the underlined phrases are infinitives or prepositional phrases. In the second part of the assignment, the student will find and underline the phrases in addition to marking them as prepositional phrases or infinitives.
