taken from:http://eastwoodlibrary.wordpress.com/pathfinders-webquests/grammar-webquest/Welcome to the grammar webquest. This is an opportunity for you to review your grammar rules and hopefully have a little fun! Your goal with this webquest is to create a “cheat sheet” for yourself that contains all that you need to know about the rules of grammar.
First, begin by reviewing the eight parts of speech. You can do that here. On a separate sheet of paper, list the eight parts of speech.
Next, give a thorough definition of each part of speech. Explain what it is and give an example. This site will help you with that.
When you have finished the above assignments, look deeper into the definitions to find subcategories. Click the term to find the definition. The subcategories you are responsible for are:
- proper nouns
- common nouns
- plural nouns
- singular nouns
- abstract nouns
- concrete nouns
- possessive nouns
- plural possessive nouns
- coordinating conjunction (Please read the beginning part about coordinating conjuctions, and then scroll down to read about beginning a sentence with a conjunction. On your paper answer the following question: When is it okay to begin a sentence with a coordinating conjunction?)
You will need to include all these on your cheat sheet!
