'Our Book of
100 Opposites'


Talk about opposites. Then prepare Our Book of 100 Opposites. First, choose themes for opposites, for example

  • Hot Things/Cold Things
  • Things on the Ground/Things in the Air
  • Black Things/White Things
  • Cheap Things/Expensive Things
  • Fast Things/Slow Things
  • Heavy Things/Light Things
  • Inside Things/Outside Things
  • Short Things/Long Things
  • Soft Things/Hard Things
Elicit opposite responses from children and list them in the booklet. You can record 50 hot things on one page of a spread and 50 cold things on the facing page of the spread. Continue with an opposite theme on each spread. When your booklet is complete, share it with other classes.
