The Dare

Question time!

What will happen after midnight?

Would you ever do something silly to impress your friends?

Is it good to be a daring person?

Story starter!

“Ha! Don’t be so silly! There’s no way that rubbing a stupid, old coin will make me shrink!” Harry laughed, as he picked up the coin and started rubbing it vigorously. “You see! Nothing!” he announced, pointing at his friend.

Sentence challenge!

Can you identify the main clauses in each of the following sentences:

Because of the rain, the paper became wet.

I accepted the dare from my brother, who is incredibly reckless.
