DIRECTIONS FOR Army of ANT-onyms GAME:
Place the stack of antonym cards in the center of the table on top of the “picnic themed page”, face down. Mix the food/picnic cards in the antonym pile. Give each child a copy of an ant hill page. Children take turns drawing an antonym card from the pile. After they name any matching antonym they place the antonym card on their ant hill. Watch out! The ants may escape from the ant hill, and go back to the picnic area. If you get a “food/picnic” card, you must put some of your ants back on the picnic themed page. Whoever has the most ants in their ant hill at the end of the game wins.
2. The matching boy/girl antonym cards can be used for simple games such as: Memory or Go Fish.
3. Use the Antonym cards as a receptive activity by asking the children to identify the matching antonym with visual choices. Or, ask the children to expressively name the matching antonym, when they are provided with one “ant”/antonym card.
