This worksheet is a learning activity focused on identifying antonyms. Students are instructed to circle the word that is the opposite of another word that is presented in bold. Each line of the worksheet contains a set of four words, with one in bold typeface, and the student’s task is to find and circle the word that means the opposite of the bold word. For example, if “young” is in bold, the student must circle “old” as its opposite from the given options.
The objective of this worksheet is to enhance the students’ knowledge of antonyms and their ability to recognize them in a list of words. It encourages students to think about word meanings and their relationships to one another. By completing this exercise, students broaden their vocabulary and develop a better understanding of word pairs that are opposite in meaning. This activity also aids in reinforcing cognitive skills like critical thinking and quick decision-making as students analyze and select the correct opposites.
