This 47-slide PowerPoint is a step-by-step presentation that teaches students when and how to use apostrophes in plural possessive nouns. It begins with a comprehensive review of what a possessive noun is. It also provides a quick review of the rules that were introduced in my singular possessive PowerPoint.

Then, three rules are introduced:

1. When a plural noun owns an object and that noun ends in -s, use ONLY the apostrophe at the end of the word. (the bees' hive)

2. When a plural noun owns an object and that noun does NOT end in -s, use the apostrophe AND the -s at the end of the word. (the men's locker room)

3. When multiple nouns own an object, use the apostrophe-s ONLY after the last noun. (my aunt and uncle's car)

Finally, there are sixteen practice slides where students choose which sentence is written correctly from a multiple choice list.

***A PowerPoint companion handout is also included in this file. Students can follow along and record answers on this handout as you progress through the PowerPoint! The companion handout is available in both printable format or digital format. The digital version is compatible with Google Slides and is ideal for distance learning.**

Also, you DO have my permission to convert this PowerPoint to a Google Slides format to share with your students.
