(View all our noun worksheets)

Welcome to our concrete noun worksheets! In this series of worksheets, students will learn about one of the fundamental types of nouns. Concrete nouns are words that represent physical objects, substances, and phenomena that exist in the real world, and can be seen, touched, heard, tasted, or smelled. Some examples of concrete nouns include:

  • Chair, table, book
  • Dog, cat, bird
  • Tree, flower, grass
  • Water, air, fire
  • Music, noise, smell

By contrast, abstract nouns refer to ideas, concepts, emotions, or qualities that cannot be directly observed or measured, such as love, freedom, beauty, or intelligence.

Students typically start learning about concrete nouns in the early elementary grades, as part of their basic grammar and vocabulary lessons.
