Here's a hands-on, creative way for your students to practice identifying antonyms! Then, the students transfer their answers to the craftivity to make ants preparing to invade a picnic basket. The finished products make a unique bulletin board or fun school hallway display! It can also be used as a novel entry in an interactive notebook!
There are two versions of the worksheet to allow for differentiation. The easier version is for lower elementary students or students who have just been introduced to the concept of antonyms. The more difficult version is for upper elementary students who have prior knowledge of antonyms and are ready for a challenge.
When they finish the worksheet, they can begin the craftivity! Student-friendly directions are included so that you can place the directions under your document camera, and students can refer to them as they complete the project. (An answer key is also included.)
Check out the preview to get a good idea of what is included in the product.
My hope is that when my students see the word “antonym” in the future (perhaps even on a standardized test!), they will recall this experience of their ant-onym picnic and remember the meaning of the word!
