In this activity students will sort 100 words into positive and negative piles.
They will then choose 5 (or however many of your choosing) of those words to break down further.
They are asked to find the positive, negative, and neutral meanings of their chosen word and use them in a sentence. They are finally asked to state the denotation for their set of words.
Perfect activity to get the point of connotation and denotation across!
