This Double Dip: Using Multi-Meaning Words activity & project also includes:

Double dip ice cream cones are a fourth grade favorite, and now they come in vocabulary and context flavor. Learners practice using double meaning words as they construct ice cream cones that contain two sentences showing how context can change the meaning of a single word. Each cone is labeled with a word; the class must choose two ice cream scoops that best fit the double meaning of the word. A very interesting idea.
