Do you know what a noun is? Let us learn about nouns in a fun and interactive way today. So, let’s start with a few examples. Suppose there is a boy, a doctor and a fireman. Who are all of them? They are all persons, which means they are all nouns. Similarly, what is the name of the city you live in? If you live in Delhi, then Delhi is a noun. So, we can say that any person, place, animal or thing is called a noun.
To make it easier, we have provided some fun examples and noun questions and answers. These noun related questions and activities are very easy and you will definitely have fun doing them.
Let us look at the picture below to understand better.
Why do we have a name? We all have a name so that people can identify us. In the same way, a noun is used to identify a person, place, thing or animal. Therefore, nouns are also called naming words.
In the above image, we can see different examples of people, places, animals and things. So, in simple words, we can define nouns as, “Words which are used as names of persons, animals, places, or things are called Nouns. Everything we can see or talk about is represented by a word that names it. That "naming" word is called a Noun.”
Now, we have some fun activities for you. If we show you some pictures, will you be able to tell whether the images are of animals, places, things or persons? Let’s start and see how many images can you identify correctly.
