Identify Antonyms

In this worksheet, students will investigate words with more than one antonym.

Worksheet Overview

Can you remember what we mean by an antonym? An antonym is a word that has the opposite meaning to another word, for example, the words hot and cold are antonyms of each other.


a very cold man


Many words have an obvious antonym, such as near and far, or over and under.


However, there are quite a lot of words that have more than one antonym. Sometimes this is because the same word can mean different things.


For example:

right (meaning 'correct') and wrong

right (as in 'right-hand side') and left


left and right sign


Sometimes there can be more than one antonym for a word with a single meaning. The antonym of open can be either shut or closed.


a closed door
