Learning Activity 1

Three handouts

1-1: Word Map

Learners develop a word map for each word. Learners write down their own definition of the word and then look up the word in the dictionary. They write down the dictionary meaning and a synonym and antonym for the word. They use the word map handout as their guide.

1-2: Words in Context

Learners write a sentence for each word. The sentence should provide the reader information on what the word means.

1-3: Word Search

Learners find the words from the text in the word search on the handout. Ask learners to make up their own word search using the website: http://puzzlemaker.school.discovery.com/WordSearchSetupForm.html. Ask learners to share their word searches with others in the class.
