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."

After 28 years of teaching English, I signed up to teach grade nine art. My school only has 15 teachers and the students were losing out on opportunities to explore their creativity. Having access to the lessons on Lesson Planet has helped me to cover the curriculum while having fun with all the different ways of teaching the subject. To say this site is a blessing is an understatement!
