This product was designed for use with 3rd to 5th graders. It works on matching antonyms. This activity is a great warm up activity or go-to activity when there is time at the end of a session. There are four mats and 32 pairs of antonyms included. The turquoise and green cards match up and the yellow and orange cards match up.
Students each get a mat. The cards are put face down on the table. Students pick up one card at a time and place antonyms on their mat. Matches are put side by side. The first person to get eight matches wins! Words can be recorded on the recording sheet.
Small Group Activity:
One mat is used. Eight words that do not match are put on the mat. These words are put in the first column of the recording sheet. Students take turns drawing cards. If the card drawn matches a card on the mat, the card is put on the mat and words are recorded on the recording sheet in the second column.
