Identifying Subordinate Conjunctions and Clauses (GPS Revision)

Identifying Subordinate Conjunctions and Clauses (GPS Revision)

(0)
An exercise children can do in pairs, groups or individually based on identifying subordinate clauses and conjunctions. I find that children often get confused when asked to underline either clauses or the conjunctions. This is a good exercise to get them used to what the vocabulary is referring to.
