Extend your vocabulary, 60 homonym challenges

Presentation designed for use as a starter or plenary activity in KS 3 English. This presentation is an amalgamation of a number of smaller starters. In this presentation there are 60 different challenges , each challenge should last no more than 1 - 2 minutes. I used them in blocks of 5 with my middle ability English group. Every challenge follows the same structure in that the students are given 2 hints at a word used as a homonym and are challenged to decode the correct answer. The challenges get progressively more difficult (based on pupil feedback). As an extension activity pupils were challenged to produce (ICT) their own homonym challenge. Hyperlinks are embedded throughout for ease of navigation and the whole presentation consists of 63 slides.
