    What is an article?

    My 3rd grader is studying his English skills, and in his grammar book, it is asking him to identify the articles (modified articles) in the sentences. We do not have a list of articles (we have one of prepositions) and I was wondering if there is a clear definition to what an article in a sentence is. (I know "the" is an article, but can't remember any others. Is there a list of them? Thank you.
