Complex sentences have 2 parts: one complete sentence and one partial idea. When we use certain conjunctions that cannot stand alone, we create a complex sentence. Examples of these conjunctions are:
if, after, because, unless
1. If you run in the hall, you might get in trouble.
2. After you finish homework, you may read.
3. I like to eat pizza because it has pineapple, my favorite fruit.
4. I will give you some cookie, unless you don't like chocolate chips.
1. If you eat pickles, ______________________.
2. After you get home, _____________________.
3, Because you are tall, ____________________________.
4. Unless you want to get caught, _____________________.
5. WRITE YOUR OWN complex sentence using if, after, because, or unless.
