A really FUNNY semicolon activity. I dare you not to laugh!
1. Which sentences use semicolons correctly? How do you know?
Students read these hilariously written sentences and decide if the final clause explains the first clause. If so, then the semi-colon used is correct! If not, then it's just random nonsense that we can all laugh at. :)
2. Can you find any incorrect sentences where the final clause is random? Rewrite them.
Students get the chance to correct mistakes once they know what a semi-colon is.
The answers are included.
The richness of the vocabulary and humour of the sentences also makes this a great link to creative writing.
