This product has 27 sets of synonyms that students cut apart and paste next to a thermometer based on their "degree" of meaning. There are also fill in the blank sentences using sets of synonyms. The sentences provide context clues so that students can decide which word has the correct degree of meaning to fit the circumstance. Creating this product was inspired by gaps I have found in my students' vocabulary. It should also help them write more descriptively, and it's great review for synonym word work.
