Build vocabulary and recognition of antonyms with a fun game of SCOOT!

Expand Vocabulary With Antonym Games

Antonyms are words that have opposite meanings. They are essential in reading and writing because they help expand students’ vocabulary and improve their language skills. Antonyms are also an excellent way for students to learn about the relationships between words and how to use them to express their ideas and thoughts effectively.

One way to boost your students’ vocabularies is to use gamified learning strategies to get them up, moving and engaging with the content. This resource download consists of two differentiated sets of antonym cards for use when playing the game of SCOOT! 

Differentiated Activities for English Groups 

  • Set One: This set of cards is best for use with younger students, as it provides a visual stimulus on each card to assist with identifying the word shown. This set has 24 cards, along with a recording sheet and an answer key.
  • Set Two: This set of cards is best for older students or students with stronger reading skills and higher-level vocabulary. These cards only present the content using words. This set includes 24 cards, a recording sheet, and an answer key. 

Scaffold + Extend Your Students

  • Support struggling students by providing visuals, like an antonyms poster, to help jog their memories. Students can also practise their dictionary skills by looking up words they do not know. 
  • Challenge fast finishers who understand the concepts to use each set of antonyms in a sentence.
