For this activity, students will divide into eight groups; each group will be assigned one of the eight parts of speech. Within their group, the students will research their Part, its definition and uses, etc. Together, they will compile examples of words, and sentences using their Part of Speech. Using this information, they will create a presentation outlining their Part of Speech, to be presented to their classmates.
