Synonym Pictographs
(visual/kinesthetic)

Have students clip magazine photos of familiar objects that have more than one name (e.g., sailboat or yacht). Challenge them to include one or two pictures illustrating list words (e.g., license, pamphlet, lieutenant, bureaucrat). Tell students to paste their pictures in a column down the center of a piece of poster board. Have them write, in a column to the left of the pictures, one word naming each object. They can then exchange posters with a classmate and in a column to the right of the pictures, write a synonym for each word. Have students display their work.
