    English for the games - Comparatives and Superlatives.

    Post by Nabil Salah 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


    • 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.

    • 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.
