Teaching the thesaurus can really be a lot of fun for kids...I honestly have students asking to use the thesaurus for fun after this activity!
Included is a basic lesson plan and two worksheets. The attractive and organized worksheets ask students to first write down adjectives describing themselves, their bedrooms, and their favorite food. They then use a thesaurus to look up appropriate synonyms to produce more interesting descriptions. You may be surprised how much fun they have with this!
