These lesson and practice worksheets for Using a Thesaurus are perfect for students who need to learn how to use a thesaurus to learn and use new vocabulary and improve their writing. First, a two-page guided lesson takes students through the parts of a thesaurus entry (for the word minor), with quick explanations on entry word, part of speech, synonyms, definitions, related words, contrasting words, and antonyms. A sample entry is given, and students are directed to locate each.
Have students complete additional work with a PRACTICE worksheet, which has students using another sample entry (for the word abandon), prompting them to find these parts on their own! Simply print and go! Answer keys are included.
Includes both PRINTABLE and DIGITAL VERSIONS for Distance Learning and In-Person Classrooms.
