Comparative Adjectives- Pick and Draw

Instructions for teachers
Decide if you want to use the adverbs cards or not. Photocopy and cut up one set of cards
per class, or one set per group of two to four students if you want to do the activity in 
groups. Ask students to spread the cards face up across the table. Students arrange the 
cards into sentences that they want to draw and/ or they want their partner to draw. 

After students finish the game, get them to put the adjectives into three categories 
depending on what their comparative adjective forms are. They can then say and/ or write 
similar sentences to draw whatever they like, and/ or test each other on the comparative 
forms.
