PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity is great if you are teaching about word choice as part of the 6+1 traits. This is a very engaging activity in which the students become detectives. Unfortunately, someone has stolen all of the juicy words, and all we're left with are the dull ones! On the worksheet, I have provided 25 dull and overused words. Students will go around the room (quietly, I might add) and find synonyms for those words. They can look at books, posters, bulletin boards, etc. However, they can't use a thesaurus. Once they find a great synonym, they will write it in the box and also list where they found that word.

There are four versions. I have altered the directions slightly for each one:
1) They fill in all 25 boxes and the 1st person done gets a prize
2) They fill in all 25 boxes (but no mention of a prize)
3) They fill in 5 boxes in a fox (like Bingo) and get a prize
4) They fill in 5 boxes in a row, but get no prize.

This is in a .docx format so that you can edit it to fit your needs.
Enjoy!
