The Synonym Speed Challenge is a literacy game that can be played with a whole class or small groups of students. During the game, students will be challenged to call out synonyms for given words to earn their team points. A page with instructions on exactly how to play the game is included in the file and can be viewed in the preview file.
As the Synonym Speed Challenge is quite a challenge, it may be a good idea to get your students accustomed to the vocabulary on the cards prior to playing. Some suggested activities could include giving your students the cards and asking them to write sentences using the vocabulary on them, or have your students search for the words in a thesaurus and list some of the synonyms they find.
After playing the game a few times, your students should start to remember the vocabulary and the game will become a way for them to practice recalling the synonyms.
