In this opposite word quiz, a word is displayed in the left hand column of the table and the quiz taker has to find its opposite in the right hand column. There are three alternatives and the student must find the one that is closest to the opposite in meaning.
In completing this quiz, the student has to understand more than just the word whose opposite they must find. They need to understand the meanings of all the alternative words so that they can test each against the first word.
There is a teacher’s copy of the opposite word quiz and there is also a student’s copy: the teacher version has the correct word highlighted (it saves you having to work it out for yourself!).
