Our Synonyms, Antonyms, Homographs, Homophones lesson plan introduces or reviews synonyms, antonyms, homographs, and homophones. Most of the students may have learned the concept of opposites, words that have the same meaning and sound, as well as different pronunciation/meanings of words, but they may not have learned the correct terms for each. Students are asked to use their creativity to make visual representations (drawings, magazine clippings, etc) of given pairs of words and write whether they are synonyms, antonyms, homographs, or homophones. Students are also asked to match definitions to each term to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define, identify, and correctly use synonyms, antonyms, homographs, and homophones.
