Grade 4 Speaking / Listening - Asking Questions

This English Language quiz is called 'Asking Questions' and it has been written by teachers to help you if you are studying the subject at elementary school. Playing educational quizzes is an enjoyable way to learn if you are in the 3rd, 4th or 5th grade - aged 8 to 11.

Who, why, what and when are all words used when asking questions. We ask questions without giving much thought to how we actually construct a question. In English, there are two main ways of forming a question: either by inverting the subject and the main verb or by the use of an auxiliary verb (a helping verb).

Here are two examples:

  • 'He is swimming in the lake. - Is he swimming in the lake?' (inversion)
  • 'He studies hard. - Does he study hard? (does is the auxiliary/helping verb).

One thing you must always remember when writing a question - the question mark at the end. You shouldn't have too many problems with this elementary school quiz.

Good luck!

Whenever you sneeze, you reach out to grab a tissue. However, tissues were invented for a different reason. Kimberly Clark is the company that invented the Kleenex tissue.

Before tissues, people used handkerchiefs. Men and women would carry a piece of cloth in their pocket or purse. They had these with them at all times in case they needed to wipe their nose and dab their eyes. Then the Kimberly Clark company invented tissues to be used to wipe off make-up. Sometimes, actors and actresses would use cream to wipe off their make-up. However, they needed something to wipe the cream off. That is why this company invented tissues.
