We have been looking at complex sentences in class. A complex sentence is a sentence that has a dependent clause as well as a main clause. A main clause on its own is called a simple sentence.
We were given the following simple sentences based on the image below and I have turned them into complex sentences (with the dependent clause in italics.)

|The men wore red coats.||In order to look good, the men wore red coats.|
|The men were feeling tired.||The men, who were exhausted from work, were feeling tired.|
|The table was piled high with food.||As a reward for their hard work, the table was piled high with food.|
|The weather was very hot today.||After several days of rain, the weather was very hot today.|
