1. Copy one handout per pair of students, and cut the handouts up into A, B and C.
2. Put the students into groups of three with an A, B and C student, and distribute the first set of white handout cards.
3. The first game involves synonyms only. Explain to students the instructions as follows: The person who has 'START' in the 'You Hear' column begins by saying their word in the 'You Say' column. The other students should listen and look at their 'You Hear' columns for a close synonym. When someone thinks they have it, they read out the word directly across from it in the 'You Say' column. The game continues in a chain until someone eventually comes to 'FINISH' from the 'You Say' column.
4. When students have finished the first game, distribute the grey handouts for a second round involving antonyms (opposites) only.
5. Monitor the students, providing language input or hints when necessary.
6. You can test the students at the end by making them turn over their cards and read out some of the full verbs. Students should respond with the phrasal verb that has the same meaning.
