Amaze your class with this worksheet! A maze is made up of lines as well as words. Class members connect the words in each sentence to find their way through the maze. Learners must employ correct usage of collective nouns and have subjects and verbs that agree in order to escape the maze. A fun activity that still challenges pupils to practice proper usage, this could be used as an in-class activity, homework assignment, or review worksheet.
Play around with collective nouns! For this activity, learners read and study a story about a band of thieves coming to an island. Readers look for the collective noun groups in the story and circle all 40 of them. This exercise includes a wide variety of collective nouns for pupils to identify as well as an answer key.
Practice identifying and using collective nouns with this resource. For this activity, pupils circle the collective noun and the group that it describes in each sentence. They then use the collective nouns to write their own sentences. The directions suggest that you read each sentence out loud. You might do this, or have learners read each sentence aloud to each other.
Explore collective nouns with this learning exercise. Learners discover what collective nouns are and describe groups of animals by using the word bank to fill in the blanks in 9 sentences. Class members are also encouraged to create their own collective nouns for a list of 12 different animals. This second part would just be for fun.
Third graders discuss and create proverbs using the book "The Hidden Feast" by Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss. They listen to the story and answer story comprehension questions. Students identify and explain any proverbs in the story, then complete a collective noun worksheet.
