Identify Verbs and Sentences

In this worksheet, students practise identifying verbs in sentences. They also identify sentences that have been incorrectly formed.

Worksheet Overview

A verb is often called a 'doing word' or an 'action word'.

Jacob raced down the hill on his bike.


Sometimes a verb is made up of more than one word:

Jacob was riding his bike this morning.


We don't just use verbs to describe action, though. A verb can also give us information about someone or something.

Jacob is nine years old. He loves football.


One important thing to remember is that every sentence needs a verb.
