Description

In this fun comparative adjectives activity for levels A1 and A2, students must guess the missing comparative adjectives in a list of interesting facts, while their opponent tries to guess the missing adjectives in their corresponding list of facts.

Students work in pairs, each with their own half of the worksheet. Although both students have the same list of facts, where one student has a comparative adjective in bold, the other has a gap that they must fill through deductive reasoning. For each fact, a student gets three guesses as to what the missing adjective is.

The first student starts by trying to guess the missing adjective in their first sentence. They tell their partner and, if they guessed correctly first time, they write down their answer and are awarded three points. However, if they guessed incorrectly, they can guess again for two points, then for one point.

The other student then starts with the second sentence on the list and so on. To make things easier, after a student guesses incorrectly, their partner can give them the clue, which is under each of the answers. Finally, the student with the most points wins.

Time permitting, you can do a feedback session with the students if any of the adjectives need clarification.
