This product makes learning the concept of connotation easy and fun while building vocabulary!
Each definition has three synonyms; the students must match up synonyms and then categorize each word according to its connotation.
Builds vocabulary! This product uses high school level vocabulary, so students may need to utilize dictionaries, depending on their vocabulary levels.
This can be used as a partner activity or individual. Could also be assigned for homework.
Prep includes making copies and cutting out words...that's it!
