This Abstract Nouns Unit meets 3rd Grade Language standards. The unit both introduces abstract nouns and reviews commonproper, and collective nouns.

This unit includes activities to teach, practice, and assess students’ understanding of the types of nouns.

Teaching Nouns

First, teachers introduce nouns with inductive activities. Students explore the difference between noun words and other types of words in order to develop a definition, then further explore noun words to begin thinking about the four types of nouns covered by the unit. After watching a 7 minute video (included), students will complete an Anchor Chart note sheet on the types of nouns.

Next, students practice nouns. They are asked to both identify nouns and come up with their own nouns for each category. Two different printable activities and a card game are included for practice.
