I] Firstly, make sure that you have completed the list of the contraria words.

II] Choose 17 Latin words and their antonyms and make a little book aimed at a child, showing
contrasting ideas in Latin.

III] You need only use the Latin word but the image must be illustrated with appropriate illustrations,
either based on Roman, or on modern life. Images may be drawn/sketched/painted, taken from the
internet, or cut and pasted from magazines. [Look at children’s books eg ‘My First Gruffalo:
Opposites’]

centurio currit
civis ambulat

IV] Using five sheets of A4 paper folded in half gives you 20 sides of A5. You will need

ª A cover/title page

ª A page showing who owns the book eg ‘hic liber est liber meus’ [this is my book’] or ‘ex libris’
[from the library of] or use one of these bookplates or make up/find your own [THESE CAN
BE FOUND ON THE INTERNET].

ª 17 pages showing the contrasting words in Latin [do not use English].

ª A back page where you can write a blurb in English or Latin about the content of the book –
this should be aimed at parents as well as children.

DISCITE DE CONTRARIIS! = Learn about opposites!

LIBER PERFECTUS MANIBUS PARVIS/INFANTIBUS! = a perfect book


for little hands/children
ª If you wish to add any more opposite words you will need to add more pages. In order not to
have any blank pages, you must have multiples of four words.
