Multiple Meaning Words

We are always working on vocabulary in my classroom and last week the opportunity came up to work on multiple meanings for the word trunk.  We have been studying plants so it was the perfect time!


Multiple Meaning Words - We call them m&m words and I promise my students a candy m&m when they finish filling out their graphic organizer!




I began by creating a tree map with the word trunk at the top.  They helped by brainstorming different meanings for the word.  With some teacher prompting, we came up with four different meanings for trunk.



Then they used my Multiple Meaning Words {graphic organizer} to create their own tree map using 2 of the meanings.


You can find this organizer in my TpT store.
