Product Description
Once your students are familiar with the terms "general" and "specific," they are ready to learn to be CONCISE!

Use this worksheet to show that being SPECIFIC and being WORDY are NOT the same!

{I love to play "human dictionary" as a follow-up activity to this worksheet.

Two students come to opposite ends of the whiteboard and receive a word and its part of speech. They have 30 seconds to write a concise (yet complete!) definition.

The other students vote on which definition contains all essential information while using the fewest words.

Give the students words they are sure to know, focusing on verbs and adjectives. I like "decorate," "nervous," "annoy," "basic," "responsible" and "extra" as starters!
