Underline all the nouns in the following sentences. Above each, LABEL whether it is concrete or abstract by writing a "C" or an "A." This part is worth 18 points.

1. Lorie and her friends went to a movie on the Fourth of July.

my book says:
Concrete nouns name something that is tangible. you can see, touch, taste, smell, or hear these words.
examples: see--sky
taste--ice cream

Concrete nouns also name things that have a specific definition, such as nouns that refer to time or date.
examples: Labor Day
Five O'Clock

Abstract nouns name an idea, a feeling, a quality, or a characteristic. These are things that cannot be touched or seen. These are words that could have several definitions depending upon the way you interpret them.
examples: hate

thanks for checking
