Antonym Contest

Challenge pairs of students to hold an antonym contest. Have each player use a dictionary and a thesaurus to look up antonyms for as many list words as possible. Then, for each list word, have students write a sentence on an index card. The sentence should provide one or more antonym clues for the list word. Next, players exchange piles of cards and take turns drawing. A player who draws a card should name the list word suggested by the antonym clues, spell it, and use it in a sentence.
