Product Description
Here is an activity to increase vocabulary skills as well as provide the necessary practice opportunity for students to use a dictionary and a thesaurus.

With the development and increased use of online dictionaries and thesauruses, students lack the necessary understanding of the purpose of a dictionary, other than to locate the meanings of words. The dictionary provides other useful information needed to understand the meaning of words, such as the part of speech.

Students are able to verbally express the meanings of the words "SYNONYMS" and "ANTONYMS", but without adequate practice, these words means nothing.

Engaging in this activity will help students to become a word detective by taking ownership of their learning using words selected by the teacher or unfamiliar words they locate in their reading.
