We bring to you the ‘matching collective nouns’ worksheets for second graders with exercises related to collective nouns. A collective noun is a noun that is generally a word or a phrase that represents a group of people or things. Ex: A fleet of ships. Even though it represents a group of things, it is treated as a singular entity and like most common nouns, collective nouns can be made plural too. Depending on the sense of the sentence, one can use a collective noun as both singular or plural.
The task at hand is fairly easy if one knows a few common collective nouns. Second graders have to match the individual elements with the relevant collective noun groups. The first one is solved in order to give an idea of what needs to be done.
