These worksheets will teach your students the differences between the three types of conjunctions.

Conjunctions come in three types: coordinating, subordinating, and correlative. Each of the three types connects words, phrases, and clauses. The pieces that are being connected will determine which type of conjunction should be used. The following collection of activity sheets will define the different types of conjunctions, and ask your students to correctly identify or place them in given sentences. Answer keys have been provided for each work sheet for instructors.

Fun Project Idea: Have your students perform the Schoolhouse Rock "Conjunction Junction" song (available on YouTube) for extra reinforcement of the definition and use of conjunctions.
