Common and Proper Nouns Worksheet

In this common and proper nouns worksheet, students have to brainstorm types of proper nouns. Answers should vary among students.

For example, if the common noun is mountain, they have to think of a proper noun like Mount Everest.Notice how the proper noun is capitalized but the common noun isn’t.

This is because common nouns are just general names. But proper names are specific and require the first letter to be capitalized.
