About the Worksheet

This interactive and printable worksheet, focuses on identifying common and proper nouns in a set of sentences related to the ocean and marine life. It is a valuable resource for teaching students the distinction between these two types of nouns, which is a crucial step in developing their grammar and writing skills.

This interactive and printable worksheet, presents ten sentences, each containing an underlined word. Students are prompted to read each sentence and determine whether the underlined word is a common noun or a proper noun, writing "C" or "P" on the line provided.
