Product Description
A four-page worksheet to practice 16 opposites (contrari) in Italian.

This worksheet include the following opposites: sopra/sotto (on/under), fuori/dentro (outside/inside), alto/basso (tall/short), davanti/dietro (in front of/behind), piccolo/grande (small/big), lungo/corto (long/short), caldo/freddo (hot/cold), forte/debole (strong/weak), morbido/duro (soft/hard), acceso/spento (on/off), leggero/pesante (light/heavy), vuoto/pieno (empty/full), lento/veloce (slow/fast), sul/giù dal (on the/off the), prima/dopo (before/after), in alto/in basso (on the top/on the bottom).

I focus on four opposites at a time (one page). I first teach the opposites by taking the kid/s around the house and asking them (in Italian) to touch something "duro" or "caldo" or "lungo" etc. I reward them with one point every time they do it right. We then move on to the photocopy, colour it as instructed and then do the exercise on a notebook.

It usually takes up to an hour to complete one page and then you can continue the game for as long as you want.

They love it!
