What are collective nouns and how are they used?
Collective nouns are used to describe a group of objects or animals thinking or moving the same way.
For example, you may see a few bees in your garden: One flying over the garden, one sitting on a flower and the other is chasing your brother. This is just three bees.
If those bees are chasing your brother at the same time, he is facing a swarm of bees. Look out!
