This is a higher order thinking activity for vocabulary.Each word cube displays the focused word in the middle. The student will choose 3 synonyms, 3 antonyms, and decide which word doesn't belong from a word list. The student will then look at 4 phrases and decide which are examples and which are non-examples. As an added bonus and to aid in word association, the picture displayed in the background is an example of the focused word.
This is a great addition to any novel study. This activity goes beyond just finding the definition - but allows the student to really break down the word for deeper understanding.
This activity can be used many ways - whole group, small group, or centers. If you laminate the sheets, you can use them more than once!
