Product Description
A semantic gradient (or word gradient) is a way to deepen students' understanding of related words. Students place words on a continuum and are forced to consider varying degrees of meaning.

Students take a set of related words and arrange them based on degrees of the qualifying factor. You can also use sets of antonyms and have them create a bridge from one antonym to the other (Sad & Happy). Students share the reasoning behind their choices. Can be used as an individual, partner or group activity.
