Something a little lighter. The daughter of a friend of ours received this worksheet in her class. You give it a try.
You can click the image for a PDF if you want to print it.
Fail worksheet is fail.
There are no antonyms here.... 
 Proof: Any online thesaurus, and your common sense. "Car" and "bucket" aren't antonyms of any word.
Hum... isn't "antonym" the antonym of "synonym"?
They are "antonyms" non "anonyms"... That would be the first thing to learn!
What's the antonym (anonym?) for "Texas's educational system"?
Apparently the antonym must be "good".
So, in Anonyms (I) they are teaching antonyms which is an antonym of anonym. I take it the teacher was unable to determine either that or the issue of the words in the box not matching really as anonyms or as antonyms. I've seen most of the teachers my children had while in public school also unable to comprehend such things (even when it was shown to them) which is, in part, why homeschooling is becoming so prevalent.
