Grammar: Comparatives & Superlatives
Time: 30 minutes
- Make one copy of the Conversation Cards for each group, and cut as indicated.
Ask the students to get into groups of 4 or 5 people.
Give one set of Conversation Cards to each group, and ask the students to scatter the cards face down on the table.
The first person in the group turns over one card and makes a comparative or superlative sentence using the word.
I am taller than Yuki.
I am the tallest person in the group.
The same student turns over a second card. If the two cards are opposites, then the student can take the cards. If the two cards are not opposites, then the student turns them both back over (in the same location).
Students continue taking turns until there are not any cards remaining.
The student with the most cards is the winner.
