The black and white and colored sets are interchangeable. Use whichever meets the needs of your students best. The colored cards act as an additional visual cue to differentiate the pairs. The black and white cards can be printed on a particular color of paper to differentiate them from other word study sets.
This set contains 112 pairs of synonym matches.
I recommend printing the materials on cardstock and laminating them for extended use.
