Worksheet Overview

Some words in English have the same or similar meaning to other words.

We call these words synonyms.




a small mouse

a little mouse


The words small and little are synonyms as they mean the same thing. 

We could also say 'a tiny mouse', which means almost the same thing but not quite. The word tiny means 'very small'.




In this activity, you can practise matching up words that mean the same, or almost the same, as each other.

It's a game of find the synonym!
