Step 2- Hunting Down the Nouns

You are now in your car and ready to roam the streets in search of the criminals!  Be very careful where you look.  You may find the information you need to catch them.  Around the first corner you see a bunch of kids.  They are singing a song. 

Begin Your Hunt


Step 3 - Seeking the Adjectives

You are on the search again!  As you roam through the streets you see a dark tunnel.  There's some noise coming from inside.   You decide to investigate.  The noise is music.  As you creep closer you can hear it.

Step 4 - Finding the Verbs

Finally, one more to capture, VERBS.  I hear they are full of action!  This is probably why they are so hard to catch!  Your day has been long, but you can't stop now!  You are driving across a bridge and look down.  A boat is floating below. 
 Its engine seems to be stalled.  As you look closely you see that it's a VERB calling for help!  Wow!  You found them and they have no way to get away!  You jump in the water and swim to the boat.  You ask them if they too will sing a song for you!  They surrender and decide to sing for you!
