    Plural Possessive NounsPlural possessive nouns show that something is owned by more than one person, place, or thing. Like singular possessive nouns, plural possessive nouns are created by adding an s to the noun. However, if the noun already ends in s, add only an apostrophe to the end of the word. For example: mens shoes, geeses feathers, books covers, buildings windows.

    ActivityAnimal Parts Describe a recogniz-able feature of a certain type of animal. For example: These are long, spotted, and stretch into the trees. Have a family member respond with the plural possessive name of the animal and the feature. For example: giraffes necks.
