Comparative and Superlative Card Game

Introduction

This engaging card game helps to teach students how to make comparative and superlative sentences using a range of adjectives.

Procedure

Put the students into groups of three or four.

Give each group the two sets of cards.

Students will also need a pen and paper for keeping score.

Tell the students to place the topic cards face up on the desk and to shuffle the adjective cards and put them face down in a pile.

Students take it in turns to choose a topic and then take an adjective card from the top of the pile.

The student then has to make a comparative and superlative sentence using the adjective on the card. The two sentences must be related to the topic.

If a student manages to do this, they receive two points.

If a student cannot make two sentences, or one or both sentences are grammatically incorrect, the adjective card goes to the next player and they try to make two sentences about the topic for four points and so on.

The game continues until all the adjective cards have been used.

The student with the highest score at the end of the game is the winner.
