To explore conjunctions

In this lesson, children will explore joining or coordinating conjunctions used in compound sentences. They will identify the two main clauses, the verbs and the coordinating conjunctions in compound sentences. They will look at the difference between 'but' 'and' and 'or' and discover when it is appropriate to use each one. Finally, they will write some compound sentences using coordinating conjunctions.
