BRIEF OUTLINE: If you can't beat them, join them. Students practice their reading skills by reading a short English comic. 

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. This activity is pretty self-explanatory. After splitting up the class into groups, have one student from each group come to the front and retrieve a worksheet for each person in their group and one dictionary. The students shouldn't need the dictionaries unless you do the variation described below.
  2. Have the students read the comic and answer the questions in full-sentence form: "Ann is the most beautiful girl at school." 

 

VARIATIONS:

  • If you have time and the students are into it, have them turn over the page and draw their own comic, but make sure they do it in English.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • This activity is best reserved until the students have learned all the various comparitive and superlative forms: er / est / most / as...as.
  • This activity is fun enough it could be given out as homework.
