Key for: Crossing the Curriculum
Find the Mistakes!
I use this as a whole group activity to ‘check for understanding’ when I introduce this lesson.
It allows me go over some basics in grammar.
Lines 1 and 5 —I would accept. Although, in the real world, Prince isn’t a synonym for Frog; it can be in the literary world.
Line 2— I might accept Funky as an adjective, but I would encourage my students to come-up with a more precise adjective.
I would not accept warts in it’s present form. I ask them to change it to an adjective.
Line 3– All wrong. I would have students to brainstorm some fitting verbs.
Line 4–Not a sentence, again I would have students to brainstorm.
Also, there are no ecology terms used from their vocab list.
