Antonym Game

Ask students to make words cards for the following six words: fantasy, conformist, motorist, certainty, pessimism, soldier. Then have pairs of students play an antonym game. The word cards should be placed facedown between the two players. Each player takes three cards, without revealing them. They must find a list word that is an antonym for each of their words. Players may need to look up any unfamiliar words in a class dictionary. Then challenge them to write sentences for their antonym pairs, leaving a blank for the list word and using the word-card word as a context clue. Tell players to trade sentences and insert the missing words.
