“Cool”orful Synonyms is a synonym matching activity that can be used for small group instruction or as an individual literacy center. Students practice matching a specific, descriptive word (popsicle stick) with its common color name (popsicle). For example: RUBY matches to RED and GRASS matches to GREEN. There are multiple matches for each common color. You, the teacher, determine the degree of complexity for the activity by adjusting how many sticks to match to the popsicle, from one to eight.
