This Thanksgiving themed word ladder activity is great for expanding vocabulary. It will be a challenge for older elementary students, perfect for middle school/early high school. 1 page is ladder, 1 page is answer key.
With word ladders, students start with one word and then add, subtract or change letters to make a series of other words. There are two clues. The clues on the right give a definition; The clues on the left describe whether students need to add, subtract or change letters. Most of the words in this ladder are homonyms (or multiple meaning words).
