Complex Sentences Worksheets

Related ELA Standard: L.7.1B

Core Standard

A complex sentence is a combination of a complete thought (an independent clause) and an incomplete thought (dependent clause) that compliments the complete thought. Complete sentences can also contain multiple incomplete thoughts. They are very helpful when writing clear and direct thoughts that contain a high level of depth. You might tend to see the use of the complex version when the author is attempting to make a mass comparison of sorts. They can help separate thoughts out to help the author justify one element over another. These worksheets provide students the opportunity to breakdown parts of sentences and rewrite them to provide a high level of complexity. Students will also get some experience learning how to write and the purpose behind writing these types of statements.
