Need a great way to practice adjectives and opposites with your students? This cute cupcake antonym matching activity helps kids identify and match each adjective and opposite. There are 60 different commonly used adjectives included in this set. Great for small groups, centers or a partner activity.

What’s included:

  • 30 Printable cupcake cards with 1 adjective and 1 opposite (6 per page)

What you need:

No-prep! Print, laminate and cut on the dashed lines and it's ready to play!

How to play:

Use with an entire class: Scatter the cards on a table or rug and let the students find an adjective and opposite until all the cards have been matched or distribute one adjective or opposite to each student and have them circulate around the room searching for the opposite! (They like this because kids love to move around).

Partner activity: Distribute one half of the cupcakes to each student and have them ask each other for the opposite of "__________".
