Using the Right Word (Cont.)
Have students review the words and definitions on this page and select a pair (or set) that interests them. Ask students to write a sentence that demonstrates the difference between the words:
When the garden shop announced its "Biennial Sale of Annuals and Perennials," it did not actually mean every two years, but rather twice a year—"Biannual" or "Semiannual."
Have students share their sentences with each other and explain the meanings of each term included.
