BRIEF OUTLINE: Students solve a riddle and make comparative sentences.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After giving each student one worksheet, r
    ead the riddle/scenario aloud and explain it in a way that the students will understand or if necessary, the JTE can translate the riddle ONLY. Do not translate the clues. Students should be able to read and understand the clues.
  2. Have students work individually or with another person to solve the riddle. The answer is quite obvious.
  3. Then have students write 5 comparative sentences using the pictures.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Drill some adjectives and their comparative form before giving out the worksheet.
