Match and Make: Oxymorons

What does the lumberjack do with a tree after he cuts it down? He cuts it up! This is an oxymoron. Oxymorons are contradiction of terms. These can be difficult to teach children in certain situations. However, when using games, oxymorons can be fun! Using terms like “crash landing” or “jumbo shrimp” can make learning oxymorons fun and interesting for kids. Children can learn to put opposite items together to form common everyday terms.
