A Game of Opposites is a simple and playful tool for helping young children build language skills. Each page shows a picture and a word. Invite children to name a word that means the opposite. Have them check their answers by moving the mouse pointer over the question mark. Discuss the meanings of words they find difficult. There is an example below and a menu of 40 words below that. Have fun! Quit when tired and play again later.

NEW for offline use: Download and print forty 8.5x11-inch pages to use in your classroom.
