SENTENCE COMBINATION

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

Sentence 1:  We went to the mall on Saturday so that the children could see Santa.
Sentence 2There was a parade through the mall in honour of Santa’s arrival.
Sentence 3By the time we got there, the mall was very crowded.

Good effort, Carmen, but you missed some of the first sentence.

Perhaps you could say something like:

We went to the mall on Saturday so that the children could see Santa during the parade that went through the mall in honour of his arrival; however, by the time we got there, it was very crowded.
