Need an activity to practice types of sentences beyond the workbook? This fun, hands-on activity leads student-driven groups in combining goofy clauses into even goofier sentences. Worksheet and lesson plan are included.
Duration: 20 minutes.
Grade level: 8-10
Using this worksheet and and paper cube template (not included) students will create two cubes and write clauses on them. Then, rolling the cubes, they combine clauses into nonsensical sentences - simple, compound, complex, and compound complex.
Use this activity after instruction on clauses and sentences, so that students can see how they are connected.
