Relative Clause Worksheets To Print:
Defining to Non-Defining
- When you really need a comma, this is why. Commas that offset information usually
indicate that it is a non‐defining clause, meaning that
the sentence could be understood without that
information. Make the defining sentences below non‐
defining by adding commas in the correct places.
There is one sentence that cannot be changed to non‐
defining; mark that one with a star.
Detailing What You Write - No need to take up a bunch of space. Adding relative clauses to sentences can be
a great way to add lots of detail to your writing without
taking up a lot of space. Put that into practice here.

Finish the Sentence - Finish the sentences that are just started off. You will need to direct a complete thought.
Where Is It At? - Read each sentence and underline the relative clause. Make sure you get everything in there.
Non-Defining - Determine what type of clause the sentence has,
and write either "Defining" if the thought is defining or
"Non-Defining" if it is non-defining next to each
