BRIEF OUTLINE: Students make sentences comparing the the characters in the picture. 





  1. Review the grammar with the students.
  2. Use the worksheet and get them to make sentences. Try to get the same amount of the Comparative Form and the superlative Forms


  • You could do a follow up speaking activity
    in pairs, one student says; Tell me about Arnie
    the other makes 2 or 3 true sentences and tells the other student



  • Remind or teach students about the spelling rules when adding 'er'. Ex: big - bigger (there is an extra 'g') Ex: cute - cuter (only 'r' is added) Ex: happy - happier (change the 'y' to an 'i')
