What Is An Abstract Noun?

Teaching Nouns

A noun is the name for any word that is a person, place, thing or idea. Person, place and thing nouns are concrete. That means you can experience them with your five senses. The only type of noun that you can’t experience with your five senses is an idea noun. Idea nouns are also known as abstract nouns. These are nouns that you can’t see or touch or feel or smell or taste, but they still exist. In this lesson plan, you’ll review common abstract nouns with your student’s favorite music and artwork.

  1. This lesson is so smart! Although I’ve used songs to depict abstract nouns, I wish I’d thought about this sequence when introducing definition essay writing with my high school sophomores. I will definitely be using this idea if it’s okay with you.
