Search for words in the dictionary to answer questions – dictionary scavenger hunts!
Vocabulary maps are graphic organizers that can be useful in helping a student learn new vocabulary words. Labeled cells in the printouts prompt the student to write the word, its definition, its part of speech, a synonym, an antonym, do a drawing that illustrates the word’s meaning, and write a meaningful sentence containing the word.
Read the definition of a word, then answer multiple-choice questions about the word.
Write the abbreviations for common dictionary terms, including noun, verb, adjective, Greek, etc. Or go to the answers.
