Underline the Subject | Class 3 and 4 Grammar Worksheet

The subject is the person or thing that performs the action mentioned in the sentence. The subject is usually a noun or a pronoun. As you know, nouns are the names of people, places, animals and things.
Pronouns are words like he, she, it, I, you, they and we.

In English sentences, the subject usually goes before the verb. However, there are some exceptions to this rule and the subject can sometimes go after the verb.

1. Neil Armstrong was the first man to set his foot on the moon.
