We have come together today to pay our last respects to these overly used or ambiguous words. They have served their purpose in the past, yet their time in this classroom has come to an end. Fear not though, the thesaurus has provided us with many more precise words to choose from. It is with that hope that we may endure as distinguished writers.
This fun-filled "dead words" activity is designed to help students detect over-used and vague words and replace them with more precise terms.
Activity comes with:
list of 40 dead words
31 printable tombstone outlines
printable 3D coffin cut-out
youtube playlist of New Orleans funeral music
