## Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

This lesson is about relative clauses. A relative clause can give more information about a sentence. They include a relative pronoun such as that, which, who, whose, where, when and have a comma before and after the clause. For example, we can add a relative clause to the sentence, “The boy put on his coat.” I'm going to use the relative clause, “Who was cold,” to tell us more about the boy. “The boy, who was cold, put on his coat.” “The chair, that was old, broke when I sat on it.” Here, the relative clause is, “That was old.” Can you identify the relative clause in the following sentence, “The chocolate, which was placed in the sun, melted away?” It is, “Which was placed in the sun.” How about, “Paris, where the Eiffel Tower resides, is in France?” The relative clause here is, “Where the Eiffel Tower resides.”

Kids earn more screen time by answering fun educational questions.
