You are required to build a robot that can do almost anything you wish. You must
include a name for your robot, and it must have at least 10 SPECIAL features. This robot
design should serve many purposes. Each special feature needs to be thoroughly
described using at least ONE ADVERB per feature. Therefore, you should have 10
complete sentences answering: Where? When? In what way? And to what extent? with
each sentence containing at least one adverb. Use the practice worksheet to help guide
you to identify adverbs, and then expand your knowledge of adverbs using the textbook
or the classroom workbooks.
Once you have designed and built your own robot, you must follow your examples
and write at least two paragraphs explaining HOW this robot can help you with your life.
Be creative and remember to UNDERLINE ALL ADVERBS. You might use a separate
page to draft your writing, but make sure to write a final, perfect copy.
You can choose to create a three dimensional robot or a clearly understandable and
labeled picture of your robot. You may work with a partner but all requirements are
doubled if you choose to work as a team. You and your partner will earn the same grade,
but you must design 20 examples instead of ten, 20 complete sentences, and four follow
up paragraphs if working as partners.
What is an adverb?
 An adverb is a part of speech that describes or modifies a verb, an adjective, another
adverb, clause, or sentence.
 Adverbs answer the questions "How?", "When?", "Where?", "Why?", "In what way?",
"How much?", "How often?", "Under what condition", "To what degree?"
 The easiest adverbs to recognize are those that end in -ly. Some adjectives end with -ly
also but remember that adjectives can modify only nouns and pronouns. Adverbs modify
everything else.
