Why are there so many types of words? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby tell you why, as they introduce you to four important parts of speech. You’ll learn how and why words are divided in categories, and why they’re so important for speaking and writing. Find out which type of word describes a person, place, thing, or idea; which describes an action; which describes or modifies nouns; and which describes or modifies verbs, adjectives, or adverbs. Finally, you’ll see how they’re all put together to form sentences. And, hey! We didn’t even get to interjections!
In this lesson plan, which is adaptable for grades 3-12, students use BrainPOP resources to identify parts of speech and how each contributes to clear communication. Students then create review activities to help other students understand and practice using various parts of speech. This lesson plan is aligned to Common Core State Standards. See more »
