Direct and Indirect Object

What is a direct object?
A direct object is a noun or pronoun that receives the action of a verb.
Tips for finding direct object
Indirect object
An indirect object is really a prepositional phrase in which the preposition to or for is not stated but understood.

An object is a noun or
pronoun that gives meaning to the subject and verb of the sentence
Requirements for a direct object...
The direct object must be a noun or pronoun. A direct object will never be in a prepositional phrase. The direct object will not equal the subject as the predicate nominative, nor does it have a linking verb as a predicate nominative sentences does.
The funny beam annihalated the brick wall.
A direct object receives the action performed by the subject. Lets just assume in a sentence the subject and verb were followed by what or whom. The beam destroyed what or whom? The beam destroyed what? So the answer would be "the brick wall" would be the Direct object.
Find the preposition phrase(s) of the sentence and label it.
Labeling is very important to ensure no mistakes. So..............

Next find the subject of the sentence, and label it. Third find the the verb and label it as action or a linking verb.
Look for the noun that receives the action of the verb. Label it as the direct object.
The indirect object is often used right before a direct object and does not follow a preposition.If a preposition is used, then the word becomes the object of that preposition, as in the following, where to and for are prepositions and man and yourself are their objects:
indirect objects are usually found with verbs of communicating or giving, like give, bring, tell, show, take, or offer. An indirect object is always a noun or pronoun which is not part of a prepositional phrase
verb usage in a indirect object
The indirect object of a sentence is the recipient of the verb. Every sentence must contain a verb. Most verbs have a direct object. Some verbs have an indirect object (usually the recipient).
Locate the prepositional phrase and label it.
Next find the subject of the sentence and label it. Third find the verb and label it as linking or action.
Look for the noun that receives the action of the verb. Label the direct object. Look for the noun that tells whom/ or for whom the action of the verb is done and who is receiving the direct.
