Bring your lesson to life with this bright, fun, interactive lesson that will help your students learn all about shades of meaning and how making certain word choices can really change our writing. In this lesson, your students will explore strong vs. weak words, positive and negative connotations, and even how some synonyms don't always imply the same things. Included in this lesson is an activator (AKA Head Scratcher) and several practice opportunities for your students to show off their newly found word wisdom.
