These Vocabulary Builders contain vocabulary relevant to eighth grade US History, which typically covers exploration through Reconstruction. I have tried to select Tier 2 words that will help students understand the core concepts of the discipline. Definitions, synonyms, antonyms, and sample sentences came from dictionary.com and thesaurus.com.
Each builder has four keywords with definitions. Multiple definitions are given if applicable.
There are four activities on each worksheet.
1. Synonym Selection. Two antonyms and a synonym are given. The student must select the synonym.
2. Synonym Matching. Students must match the keywords to different synonyms.
3. Fill in the blank. Students must use the keywords to complete sample sentences.
4. Write your own sentence. The student must use the keywords in original sentences. Answers will vary. :)
