Students then glue the ant together, placing it on a worksheet, and fill in the tail with an antonym for the word provided in the body to create an

“Antonym Ant!”Slide8


Once students glue their ants on their worksheet, they will write a sentence using the word they were given and their antonym – circling the antonyms in each sentence.

Once sentences are written, they will raise their hands for teacher to look at, if correct, they will be given crayons to begin drawing a picture to represent their sentences.Slide9
