Words that name people, places and things are called nouns. The following lists a variety of nouns.
EXAMPLES OF NOUNS
PEOPLE        : Teacher, girls, boys
PLACES        : province, lake, west sumatra
THINGS        :           ANIMALS                : dog, cat, hen
OBJECTS                  : motorcycle, car, television
SUBSTANCES         : iron, air, gold
ACTIONS                  : (a) race, (the) dance, (the) hits
MEASURES : kilogram, centimeter, day

Nouns can be found anywhere in a sentence, and most sentences contain several nouns. One way to find nouns is to look for the little words a, an, the. The naming word that comes after them is probably a noun. Sometimes nouns appear without these little words, but you can usually insert them without changing the meaning of the sentence.
Example:
Paul and his children visited the continent of Africa and saw some lions.
Description:
·         Paul is a noun that names a person.
·         Children name people nouns in this
·         Continent names a thing picture?
·         Africa names a place
·         Lions name a thing.
