This packet targets synonyms and antonyms in a fun, interactive manner. I recommend putting the cards together in a flipbook; however, you can also use the cards as single sheets if you wish. This targets synonyms and antonyms IN SENTENCES. The borders of the cards are different, which makes it easy to quickly flip to the section you need. This is appropriate for readers (grades 2 and up), as there are no pictures.
SYNONYMS = blue
ANTONYMS = green
Set Up: Laminate and cut out cards (there are 2 per page). Attach all cards using three binder rings at the top. Students can use a small binder clip or clothespin to clip onto the correct answer or simply point to the answer.
A poster explaining synonyms and antonyms is on pg. 3. There are a total of 80 cards: 40 synonyms and 40 antonyms.
The second file of companion activities contains black and white worksheets that can be used as follow-up activities or sent as homework. There are a total of 10 different worksheets (5 that target synonyms and 5 that target antonyms).
