Identifying Synonyms

This Identifying Synonyms lesson plan also includes:

"Let the hunt begin!" As an introduction to synonyms, second graders generate a list of word pairs that have similar meanings. The words pairs are written on sentence strips, cut apart, shuffled, and distributed to class members who must then find a partner who has a word that means the same thing.
