Help your students apply what they know about synonyms and connotations with this Synonyms and Connotation Team Activity. Students will enjoy working together and reporting back to the class to see which team can come up with the greatest number of unique synonyms for a given word. Page 1 includes the directions that can be copied onto a transparency or passed out as handouts. Page 2 is the Student Word List where students individually write down their synonyms for the words given in the two rounds. Page 3 is the Team List where teams combine their words and then keep track of their unique synonyms as other teams share their words. Page 4 is the Master List, which can be copied onto a transparency, where the teacher or a designated student can keep track of all the words reported back to the class from the teams. Page 5 includes an example of a Master List for one of the words. Page 6 is a chart that students can use to categorize the synonyms according to their connotations, which can be used as an individual assignment or a continuation of the team activity. Page 7 is an example of the connotation chart with an extra column that designates the degree of positivity or negativity according to its strength or weakness. .
