This "Words Across Contexts" activity bundle includes the reading, writing, and history editions of my activity.
Words Across Contexts is a vocabulary building activity that helps students understand that the meanings of words change depending on their context. Students learn multiple meanings of the same word, enabling deeper understanding and more nuanced comprehension.
The simplicity of this activity makes it accessible to a variety of learners and will also engage all students in higher order thinking. You can vary the level of supports you provide students to personalize this activity even more (you may provide dictionaries, allow group work, do examples with students, etc.).
-Appropriate for Humanities, English Language Arts, Social Studies, History, and Reading subject areas
