A compound word is a word that is made up of two other words.
For example foot + ball gives us football.
The two words must be words in their own right, so you can not
have words like Beaut + iful for beautiful.
Look at these words. How many compound words can you make by
putting two together to make a new word? There are lots of different
possibilities to find out.
Hint: A dictionary might help.
Example Pea + hen becomes Peahen (a female peacock)
How many compound words can you think up yourself?
Make a list like the one in task one showing clearly the two
words you have used to make the compound words you have found.
Choose ten of the compound words and put them into sentences.
Can you make all ten sentences relate to the same theme? For
example, all the words could be put in sentences about animals
