Antonyms Lesson 1

Today we are learning about antonyms. Antonyms are words which are opposite in meaning e.g. wet and dry.

Main activity

Today we are learning about antonyms. 

Antonyms are words which are opposite in meaning e.g.

  • back and front
  • poor and rich
  • buy and sell
  • break and mend
  • glad and sorry
  • fast and slow
  • bitter and sweet
  • noisy and quiet
  • long and short
  • dark and light


Begin by logging in to EducationCity   Go to this week's Homework folder and use the "Horn to Run" activity to practise using pairs of antonyms in sentences.


For your written activity, choose one of the two tasks below.  Don't forget to read the instructions carefully and, when writing out your sentences, make sure that you spell the words correctly and use the necessary punctuation!

Antonyms challenge!

To finish our lesson, why don't you play a game? Ask someone in your house to play against you!


Download the "Antonyms pelmanism game" worksheet and cut up the sheet into individual squares.  Jumble the squares up and then spread these squares across a table or desk and turn them all face down. 


Take it in turns to turn over two squares at a time.  If the words on these two squares are a pair of antonyms e.g. "black" and "white", you get to keep these squares so place them in a pile in front of you.  If they are not a pair of antonyms e.g. "black" and "dry", turn these squares back over.  Keep taking it in turns to turn over two cards at a time until all the pairs of antonyms have been correctly matched.


The winner is the person who has the most cards in their pile at the end of the game.  Good luck!
