Sports Team Connotation Activities

Reinforce your pupils' knowledge of connotation and denotation with a set of three sports team name activities. Using a dictionary, partners examine, define, and discuss 16 fictitious names for athletic teams. They brainstorm and analyze the names of real-life professional team names. Finally, they create a poster for an imaginary team they name by themselves. Connect this resource with related lessons in the unit called "Connotation: Three Lessons for Effective Word Choice."

Your site is extremely easy to maneuver, and your search engine sorts beautifully--down to the grade level and super-specific subject matter. As a graduate student, studying for my teacher's license, I've found great, creative inspiration in the content links on your site. I count on your site more than any other I've found to date.
