Students simply cut out the picture squares, then match the synonyms or antonyms on each picture to the space on the grid with the correct word. The image squares are then pasted in this grid position. When all of the squares are pasted into place, a picture will appear.
The worksheets increase in difficulty and come in a mix of 9 and 12 square puzzles.
My students really loved completing these pages and they were ideal for both a whole class task and for individual / centre work.
The 12-squared worksheets increase in difficulty to cater for varying ability levels.
Puzzle 1: Synonyms - Beginner Level (K-2)
Puzzle 2: Synonyms - Mid Level (3-5)
Puzzle 3: Synonyms - High Level (6-8)
Puzzle 4: Antonyms - Beginner Level (K-2)
Puzzle 5: Antonyms - Mid Level (3-5)
Puzzle 6: Antonyms - High Level (6-8)
Each of the 6 individual worksheets are self-correcting. The students will know if they have all the answers correct because the picture will be completed.
Images are included on the last page to show you what the finished puzzles will look like. All pages have been intentionally created with only black and white images to reduce printing costs.
CLEVER TIP: A co-worker of mine enlarged and laminated these pages to A3 size. She then used Velcro dots for each square so that she could have a reusable centre for her literacy rotations.
