Lesson Handout and practice worksheets for Using a Thesaurus are perfect for students who need 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 practice or complete the work independently with an additional worksheet using another sample entry (for the word abandon), prompting them to find these parts on their own. Simply print and go! Answer Key included.
Includes both PRINTABLE and DIGITAL VERSIONS for Distance Learning and In-Person Classrooms.
