Our Simple and Compound Sentences lesson plan introduces students to the difference between simple and compound sentences. As part of the lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively with a partner to identify the subject and predicate of simple sentences, then turn those simple sentences into compound sentences, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson material. Students are also asked to write new simple or compound sentences using given pair of sentences, giving them more practice forming both types of sentences.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify the difference between a simple and compound sentence; produce, expand, and rearrange complete simple and compound sentences.
