English for the games - Comparatives and Superlatives.

on 2012-04-29, 06:26
Three of a kind?


Use this activity to practice the use of comparatives and
superlatives and to introduce more complex ways of comparison. As a sub
aim it also revises various lexical sets depending on the things to be
compared. It can be adapted to be used for all ages although it is
essential that some previous introduction to comparatives and
superlatives has been done.
Activity type: Group work

Materials

  • Copies of the three of a kind template.

  • Procedure:


  • Choose 3 students and ask them to come to the front of the class.
  • Ask
    the class how each student is different. This should elicit comparative
    structures for example ‘Student A is taller that student B’ and
    ‘Student B has longer hair than student C’. It should also elicit
    superlatives such as ‘Student C is the tallest’ and ‘Student B has the
    biggest feet’.
  • Write these structures on the board and elicit
    the various rules when making comparisons. Depending on level you may
    also see fit to introduce other structures such as ‘Student A is as tall
    as student B’. This will depend on the ability of your class
  • You
    can now ask students to directly comment on what the students are
    wearing. Examples sentences such as ‘They are all wearing blue jeans’
    may occur. Again write all these sentences on the board.
  • When
    they are done ask three more students come up and draw the people
    according to the descriptions on the board. This provides a fun,
    kinaesthetic part of the activity and allows an opportunity to be
    somewhat creative.
  • Now put students into groups of three, give
    out the ‘Three of a kind?’ template and ask them to do the same in their
    groups. Each group should have the same exact sentences as this
    encourages collaboration however the pictures will be different. Set a
    time limit and monitor.
  • When finished put the finished sheets on
    the walls and encourage students to walk around, read and add any more
    comparatives they can think of.
Extension:

  • Students
    could choose a form of transport, draw it and compare it with each
    other. They could also bring photos in of family members. Younger
    learners may enjoy doing the same thing with animals.
