OUTLINE: Students practice using better and best while trying to match the character to their favorite things.




  1. Make a two sided worksheet, with the first two pages of the attachment.
  2. Divide the class into groups and hand out a worksheet for each group.
  3. Each group must then send a student to a teacher to whisper what they think is the correct answers for each character's likes. (Jerry, Tom, Lisa and Tracy) And then they must whisper the answer to the last question.
  4. If the student’s guesses are correct, the teacher will nod his/her head, allowing the group to move on to the next question. If not, the teacher will shake his/her head and the student can guess again.
  5. Once the student has guessed correctly, he/she will return to his/her group and the next student can go up to the teacher for the next question.
  6. Students continue to fill up the question sheet one by one.
  7. The first 3 groups to complete the answer sheet get extra points. Each correct answer (without any spelling or grammar mistakes) earns one point. The group with the highest score wins!



  • There is an answer sheet included for a listening version. Instead of having students read the clues the teacher can read the clues out loud to the whole class.



  • Make sure that each group only sends one student up at a time; otherwise it could get rowdy real quick!
