Complex Sentence Structure: A Hands-On Sentence Creating Activity
Complex Sentences! This sentence structure product includes 47 cut-apart pieces: 16 independent clause sentence strips in a story, 19 dependent clause signal words (subordinating conjunctions), and 12 punctuation pieces. It includes detailed directions (with photo examples) for a paired student activity led by the teacher.
Students can separate each piece in piles based on whether the clause is dependent or independent. After sorting, students can either match each half with its corresponding clause, or use it to create their own complex sentence.
