Product Description
This activity introduces students to connotation and denotation. The students look at word choice and how words mean different things in different contexts. They look at the word skinny and the different shades of meaning. Then students look at photos of staff members demonstrating various shades of anger. They come up with suitable words. Then students are giving various words to create their own photo slideshow. (I used words like laugh, cry, talk, smile, confused, etc).

This includes a lesson, worksheets, and a sample graphic organizer. There is a possibility to use technology with this with creating surveys and spreadsheets on google. Email me if you'd like more information.
