Collective Nouns Worksheet: Fill in the Blanks

Last Updated: May 31, 2018

Collective Nouns Worksheet

In this collective nouns worksheet, students have to fill in the blanks with words at bottom of the page. Enter in the best possible answer for each collective noun.

When you put individual things into groups, the way you describe that collection is a “collective noun”. For example, words like “flock”, “herd” and “swarm” are collective nouns because they are names for a collection of things.

In this collective nouns worksheet, we want you to use only each answer only once. But in colloquial English, we can’t always think of the collective noun.

If you can’t think of a “flock of birds”, you can just say “group of birds”. Because there are hundreds of collective nouns examples, you can try to memorize then all. But don’t worry if you can’t. 🙂
