Noun Clauses Practice

ESL Noun Clauses Worksheet - Reading, Matching and Writing Exercises - Intermediate (B1) - 30 minutes

This noun clauses worksheet helps students to become familiar with noun clauses and practice using them in sentences. Give each student a copy of the two-page worksheet. The students begin by reading about noun clauses. The students then identify noun clauses in sentences by underlining them. Next, the students choose the subordinator that best completes each noun clause. After that, students put words in the correct order to create sentences that have noun clauses. The students then move on to match sentence halves together, adding in a subordinator to complete each noun clause. Next, the students complete each noun clause with a suitable subordinator. In the last exercise, students complete sentences with their own noun clauses. When the students have finished, review their sentences as a class.

Noun Clause Race

ESL Noun Clauses Game - Reading, Listening and Speaking Activity - Intermediate (B1) - 25 minutes

In this noun clauses game, students listen to sentence pairs and race to change them into single noun clause sentences. Give each group of three or four a set of cards, which they shuffle and place face down in a pile on the table. One student begins by picking up a card from the top of the pile and reading the two sentences at the top of the card, without showing the card to anyone, e.g. 'Was he lying?' 'We couldn't tell'. The other students listen and race to create a single noun clause sentence from the two sentences. The first student to say the correct sentence written at the bottom of the card wins and keeps the card, e.g. 'We couldn't tell whether he was lying'. If no one is able to guess the correct sentence, the answer is revealed and the card is placed in a separate pile on the table. The game continues with students taking it in turns to pick up a card and read out two sentences until all the cards have been used. The student with the most cards at the end of the game wins.

You're so noncommittal!

ESL Noun Clauses Board Game - Writing, Listening and Speaking Activity - Upper-intermediate (B2) - 25 minutes

Here is a free noun clause board game to help students practice forming and using noun clauses to give noncommittal responses to questions. Give each group of three or four a copy of the game board, a dice and counters. Each student will also need a pen and paper for writing. Explain that the students are going to play a board game where they ask questions and score points by forming and using noun clauses to give noncommittal responses. The winner is the student with the most points at the end of the game. Students begin by placing their counters on the 'start' square. The students take it in turns to roll the dice and move their counter along the board. When a student lands on a square that contains a scrambled question, they unscramble the question and ask it to the group members, e.g. 'Who is that?' The other group members then race to form a noncommittal response to the question using one of the sentence frames in the bank and a noun clause. The first student to write an appropriate and grammatically correct response on their paper and say the reply wins, e.g. 'I don't know who that is'. If it is the first time the winner has used that particular sentence frame, they score two points. If the winner has used that sentence frame previously, they score one point. The first student to reach the 'finish' square scores an extra three points. When a student reaches the finish, the game ends and everyone counts up their points. The student with the highest score wins.
