Lesson Plan Text
Gradable and Extreme Adjectives Miming Game
Choose one of the rows from below (maybe from a cut-up worksheet) and silently mime all
three adverb + adjective pairs in the order that they are given (from left to right).
Continue miming all of them until your partner says all three things written on the cards. If
they still can’t guess, you can give them (oral) hints such as first letters.
fairly scared/ frightened
very scared/ very frightened
absolutely huge/ enormous
absolutely awful/ terrible
Do the same, but this time only choosing one card (e.g. “absolutely delighted”). You can
mime the versions with different adverbs in contrast if your partner can’t guess your
adverb + adjective pair.
Do the same with your own ideas for adverb + adjective pairs, again miming contrasting
pairs and/ or giving hints if your partner can’t guess.
