Students work in groups or centers

Write several of the nouns from the recipe on a set of index cards (carrot, zucchini, squash, tortilla, etc.). Make several sets so each group in the class will have its own set of cards.

Students will write a possessive noun to go with each of the noun cards, then create a sentence using the possessive noun.

Students underline the possessive pairs in their sentences. (Ex. Scott’s carrot was orange. The girl’s zucchini was chopped)
