FREE Clauses Worksheets

Here you can find 151 worksheets that deal with the topic of clauses. This section is also divided into subsections which can assist you in locating the right activity for your students. This worksheet is for pre-intermediate students who need more practice using time clauses. All the teacher’s notes and materials are included for this fifteen minute practice activity so it is easy to include in your lesson plan. There are other worksheets about clauses too and since they are all free and easy to print, you may as well look at several different ones before deciding what would be best for your students. If you have your own worksheets on clauses, you can upload them to the website for other teachers to use.
There are different types of clauses that students will learn throughout their English studies. It is important to focus on one or two types of clauses at a time so that students do not become overwhelmed by the difference structures and uses. Certain clauses can be introduced in lower level classes while others are best saved for more advanced students. What you include in your course will obviously be greatly influenced by the level and age range of your students.

GRAMMAR TIP:What Are Clauses?
In grammar, a clause is the smallest grammatical unit that can express a complete proposition . In some languages it may be a pair or group of words that consists of a subject and a predicate, although in other languages in certain clauses the subject may not appear explicitly as a noun phrase. It may instead be marked on the verb (this is especially common in null subject languages). The most basic kind of sentence consists of a single clause. More complicated sentences may contain multiple clauses, including clauses contained within clauses. Clauses are divided into two categories: independent clauses and dependent clauses. Independent clauses can be easily differentiated from dependent clauses by their ability to stand by themselves, even when connected with different clauses in the same sentence.
