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!

PRINTABLE CRAFTIVITY VERSION: First, students complete a worksheet where they read a phrase and circle the antonym for the underlined word. 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.)

TPT DIGITAL EASEL VERSION: This is a paperless version that can be completed on a device. The first slide sets the scenario and gives the directions. After the first slide, each slide contains a donut image with a short phrase written on it. Four ant options are beside it. One ant displays an antonym for the underlined word on the donut. Students must select the correct ant image and drag it to the donut.

This activity contains 25 slides! You can easily delete slides that might be above your students' level. This is a great test prep activity because it is basically a multiple-choice activity presented in an engaging format!

Check out the PREVIEW.

Also, I also have a Google Slides version available of this activity. If you prefer using Google Slides activities with your students, you might want to take a moment to check out that paperless option. Click on this link to check it out!

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!
