Complete Subject & Predicate

Subject/Predicate Scavenger Hunt

Fold a paper in half so that you have 2 columns. Write an S on one side of the fold and a P on the other side. Fold the paper where you can only see one column at a time. Begin with the S side and make a list of nouns, then begin a list of verbs under the P. When you open the paper back up again you will have several two word sentences.
