Worksheet Description

This worksheet is designed to enhance students’ dictionary skills by guiding them to look up words and write down their primary definitions. This exercise not only helps to expand their vocabulary but also improves their ability to navigate a dictionary efficiently. The worksheet lists several words, such as “impetus,” “collage,” and “obscure,” with blank spaces next to each for students to fill in after researching.

Students are encouraged to understand the nuances of each word, which aids in comprehension and proper usage in various contexts. The task of writing down the definitions allows for reinforcement of the learned meanings, making it a practical activity for vocabulary development. This is an excellent tool for educators to assess students’ ability to use reference materials effectively and for students to engage actively with new words, enhancing their literacy and learning skills.
