Now we can apply synonyms and antonyms to sentences! For the following sentences find a synonym for each underlined word so that the sentence is still true: <ul><li>The stray cat was too skinny , so we gave her more food. </li></ul><ul><li>After walking all day the children became tired . </li></ul>For the following sentences find an antonym for each underlined word so that the sentence becomes true: <ul><li>The Statue of Liberty is 305 feet high, so it is short compared to a five-year old boy. </li></ul><ul><li>At the library the students are really noisy because everyone is concentrating on reading to themselves. </li></ul>
