**SENTENCE COMBINATION, May 2nd, 2013**



Learning to combine ideas into more complex sentences is an important skill in writing. There are many ways to do this--many possible bonus points! Try to combine the following three sentences.

Sentence 1: The French were the first Europeans to settle in what is now Canada.
Sentence 2: Many of the British who came to Canada went to the New England colonies first.
Sentence 3: The American War of Independence prompted many Loyalists to leave the colonies and head for Canada as it was still under British control.

The French were the first Europeans to settle in what is now Canada, and many of the British who came to Canada went to the New England colonies first; the American War of Independence promted many Loyalists to leave the colonies and head for Canada as it was still under British control.
