These activity sheets will teach your students how to identify different types of clauses (independent vs. dependent), the difference between compound and complex sentences, what kinds of words signal dependent clauses, and more. Answer keys have been provided for each activity sheet (be aware that some answers may vary). Note: A collection of worksheets that focus specifically on clauses is available elsewhere on this site. Instructors may want to use those in their curriculum first.
