These two Connotations Activity Sheets provide students a fun way to practice the vocabulary skill of identifying and working with words that have different connotations. One is a color coding activity and the other asks students to generate their own lists of words and rank them by their connotations. Both activities are single page, ready to use printables for middle school or upper elementary students.

With the color coding activity, students identify two words with similar connotations to a given word and then use both in sentences to show the different connotations. A geometric design is provided for students to color in.

The other activity illustrates opposite words on a scale or balance. Students first list additional words with the same basic meaning as each of the opposite terms and them order the words in each group according to the criteria given.

These activities support common core reading and language standards including the reading comprehension standard of determining word meanings and the vocabulary standard of understanding word relationships and word nuances.
