From Theme 2 - "Around the Pond: Who's Been Here?"

by Lindsay Barrett George

In this Kidspiration template students will match animals with clues that tell the reader who has been near the pond. The template has a hyperlink to an interactive webpage where students can make their own pond.

Five words with multiple meanings are on the Kidspiration template. Each word has 2 meanings. Students read the sentences on the screen and decide which meaning of the word best fits the sentence. There is a hyperlink on the Kidspiration template that goes to an interactive website for multiple meaning words. Students will most likely need teacher guidance to do the online game. It's an activity to do together.
