Is the Ellipsis Used Correctly?

How can you tell if an ellipsis has been used correctly? This two-page worksheet can help! Give students practice with punctuation as they read three informational paragraphs and determine if the ellipses are used correctly in different quotations pulled from each text. Designed for an eighth-grade grammar curriculum, students will read about cat behaviors, early mapmaking, and artificial wave machines, all while analyzing the meaning and grammatical structure of quotes pulled from each paragraph.
