Discover the wonders of Sentence City!

New York City awaits you and your students, from the Statue of Liberty to the lights of Broadway, from the Outer Boroughs to the September 11 Memorial Museum. Students in grades 3–5 choose their own path through video tours of Wall Street, Chinatown, Central Park, and Harlem. Along the way, they learn about sentences!

Sentence City includes . . .

  • Four major places to explore: Downtown, Midtown, Uptown, and the Outer Boroughs
  • Twenty adventures that teach about subjects, predicates, phrases, clauses, variety, style, and much more!
  • Four robust activities that allow students to apply what they have learned
  • The Sentence City quiz to test their learning
  • Standards alignment and vocabulary throughout the adventures

You can project videos on the board and have students vote on their next adventure, or you can have students work independently, completing assignments and quizzes at their own pace. They can hand in Google doc assignments through a Google Classroom workflow, or print them out and fill them in by hand. And your students will have a lot to write about—brimming with their amazing discoveries in New York!

So, take a bite out of the Big Apple, and learn about simple, compound, and complex sentences and much more!
