Page 10-11 – Howdy Partners! – Antonyms – print, laminate and cut apart. One part of the antonyms are placed face down on one side of the table, the second part of the antonyms are placed face down on the other side of the table. Students take turns drawing a card from each side trying to match an antonym pair. If they match, they keep the pair. If it doesn’t match, it goes back, face down. The student with the most pairs at the end is the winner.
