This PowerPoint slideshow will help your students identify and use antonyms. The students begin with a simple definition, examples of opposites (on…off, left…right, yes…no, etc.), and a “buggy” conversation in which two kids disagree (with antonyms). Then, students examine antonyms within sentences, identifying twenty-seven pairs of antonyms in a multiple-choice format. Then, ten more sentences give students the chance to fill in the blank with an appropriate pair of antonyms. To culminate this lesson, students create their own sentences with a pair of antonyms based on an animated image.
Each sentence is based on a funny .gif image and the entire slideshow is fully animated (just click on the arrow to advance to the next slide). This lesson is perfect for whole-class instruction, and you can place it on student-computers for independent review.
