Grown Ups 2: Noun Clauses, Included Questions

I don't usually like sequels, but I think this one is just fine. The first movie had very interesting scenes and so does this one. I hope you enjoy this activity.


Noun clauses starting with THAT - I like this jacket. How much is it?
I think (that) it is $25.

Noun clauses starting with a WH-WORD - I like this jacket. How much is it?
I don't know how much it is.

Some noun clauses beginning with the word THAT. Others with a wh-word (who, what, where, why. how, when, which, whose) .

Verbs describing an opinion, feeling, or mental state

Ex:  assume - believe - guess - forget - hope - know - remember - suppose - think - understand - wonder

Verbs that describe what someone said 

Ex: admit - explain - mention - say - tell


Watch the movie segment and then change the question into a noun clause that starts with a wh-word.

Ex: The family was surprised to see a deer in their house. What should they do to be safe?
I don't know what they should do to be safe.

1. The couple were very scared when they saw the deer in their room.
Why did they feel that way.
I wonder ________________

2. The little girl left the door open in case an animal wanted to get into the house. Why did she do that?
I don't understand ____________________

3. The family needed help. Where could they find some help?

4. They live in  a place where wild animals can invade their houses. How can they prevent animals from getting into their houses?
Can you suggest ______________?

5. They managed to scare the deer away. What did they do?

Answer key:

1. I wonder why they felt that way.
2. I don't understand why she did that.
3. Do you know where they could find some help?
4. Can you suggest how they can prevent animals from ...?
