Welcome to the Parts of Speech Webquest ! This is an opportunity for you to review what you have learned and hopefully have a little fun!
Words are everywhere. We use them everyday and it is important that we know how to use them correctly. The parts of speech are essential building blocks of the English language. Each part has its own function and importance in the English grammar.
Your goal with this webquest is to create a "cheat sheet" for yourself that contains the main aspects about the eight parts of speech in English (Noun, Verb, Adjective, Adverb, Pronoun, Preposition, Conjunction and Interjection). This webquest also allows you to strengthen your technology skills, exercise your creativity, practice your research skills, appreciate the complexity of the English language, experience the fun of language, and visit resource sites to discriminate between different parts of speech.
1. Using Microsoft Word Program or any other word processor, elaborate a table like the one presented below:
