Product Description

Synonyms and antonyms worksheets with a twist! Would you like to see your students use expanded and precise words more often? Help them go beyond "big" and "happy" with a fun, no-prep, synonyms and antonyms worksheet activity that will really make them think!

When you want a morning warm up, a bell-ringer, or something for your early-finishers, grab one of these cool new puzzles*. It's more than just a word choice worksheet, more than just synonyms and antonyms worksheets - even more than a word search puzzle. It's a combination of all of the above - plus a punny riddle to solve (yes, "punny" :) ).

A Combination of a Synonyms and Antonyms Worksheet, Word Choice Worksheet and Word Search Puzzle

This teaching resource contains a total of ten word search puzzles that require a student to find 16 synonyms and antonyms of these common adjectives: "big", "happy," "good," "easy," "young".

Differentiated - an Easy and a Challenging Version Included

There are two versions of each puzzle so you can differentiate between students who may be learning these words for the first time and students for whom this can be used as a vocabulary review or bonus challenge.

The easy version is a simple word search with a word bank of words to find; in the difficult version, the student is only given one word and must figure out the word bank as well.

In both versions, after the student has found and circled all the words, the remaining letters will spell out the answer to a punny riddle related to the topic word.

*All our puzzles are made by hand. We never use an automatic word search maker because word search puzzles are better when they are handmade --- more challenging, better layout of hidden words, and in general quality.
