Tip: Opposites Attract
How do I do it?
Create sets of cards with pairs of words &/or pictures that match like opposites, e.g. up/down, under/over, democracy/dictatorship, add/subtract, etc. Mix them and have students match them or play memory.
Variations & Extensions
Have students create their own opposite pair cards, then have them trade with a partner and try to find all the pairs.
