Synonym spiders

A lovely exercise. Can we find synonyms for adverbs? Children first have to predict what the synonyms might be and then use thesauruses to check their thinking.

Used with a group of year 5/6 students. Q&A session with definition and examples including students' own which they shared. Then followed with the worksheet. Good focused activity. Can be used as a starter, plenary or homework.

Used with a small group of year 5/6 students. Discussed what synonyms were, gave examples and then students did their own and shared. This was then followed by the worksheet. Good focused activity.
