With this free activity you can give students a list of words to investigate. Work individually or in teams. Includes a worksheet and a Powerpoint briefing.
FAO: Chief Sheriff
Choose which words are under investigation and issue them to your crack team of Word detectives.
During the investigation detectives may use a dictionary, a thesaurus, story books, newspapers and magazines to investigate:
- what each word means
- how it is used and then identify similar looking and/or sounding words.
At the debrief each team can share notes and help with unsolved cases.
