There were two learning intentions for this lesson.
1) Identify independent and dependent clauses.
2) Identify the subject and the predicate
This lesson was precursor to a lesson on complex sentences. In order to understand complex sentences kids had to have a good understanding on independent and dependent clauses. The episode starts with the kids spotting the difference between two different clauses. This then leads into a whole class lesson about clauses in particular independent clauses. The video wraps up with footage of the children participating in the subject/predicate activity and also features children working on their presentations. Please visit my Google Class OnAir site for a detailed lesson plan, reflection and examples of the kids work.
