Learn, sort, complete, define, draw, & write multiple meaning words as you celebrate our Earth. Students will gain exposure to and experience with 9 Earth Day-themed multiple meaning words (park, spring, rock, wave, root, kind, trip, season, yard).
LEARN – cards have word and both definitions…can use in a pocket chart, on the word wall, and as an introduction
SORT – sort the two meanings to the correctly labeled recycling box…can do as cut/paste or can laminate a set, cut each vertical strip, and students paperclip the matches together
COMPLETE – Using context as a clue, students will write in the missing word to complete each of 16 sentences. A separate activity has students writing the multiple meaning word that goes along with each set of definitions
DEFINE – students use multiple meaning word cards to quiz each other (can answer verbally or using the white board…students who still require extra support can use the two pages of sorting definition cards as answer choices)
DRAW & WRITE – students use a template to write the word, draw two pictures, and create a meaningful sentence using both contexts (one multiple meaning word per page)
