This is a free sample activity (using synonym & antonym context clues) from the following original resource: Common Core RL 3.4 & RL 4.4 Context Clues Toolkit
The original resource is perfect for introducing, practicing, reviewing, or test prep.
The complete toolkit contains various instructional resources to assist students’ understanding of the different types of context clues and how to use these clues to determine the meaning of unknown words. The double-sided flipbook is easily constructed and includes everything needed to introduce and practice. Once completed, this flipbook is an awesome reference for students throughout the year.

Each section of this flipbook-
✓ defines the type of context clue
