Comparative Olympics

Thank you to the original poster for this activity. I just spiffed it up, and included enough challenges for one example and 15 pairs of students. I will split the class into two teams, and have each team send one student to the front for each challenge, before they see what the challenge is. The whole class will ask the comparative question, the two students will "compete" and the winning team will answer.

It might be worth bringing a die (who is luckier...) and a ruler (whose hair is longer...) with you to class.

If your students are higher-level than mine, you might want to edit the ppt so that after a few challenges, students can only see the comparative word need to create the sentence around, it using the picture for clues.

Found a board game someone on a similar lesson in another book made. I edited it a little, so when the student lands on the space they make a sentence with the picture-word-picture from left to right. For example: The dog is shorter than the horse.

I also made it a little harder by telling the students that if they land on a space with another student, the other student goes back to start.  :evil:
Let the games begin!

These are logic puzzles for the reading section - I've taken a couple of things from other posters and then added some story-sums. It was run as a group activity.

Everyday SONG

This song emphases the use of "harder, smarter, wiser". You can use 2 activities to support the song: Song Strips, and Fill In The Blanks.

I'm so tired of this lesson...

I made a lyric handout for the song Anything You Can Do - Annie Get Your Gun (print double sided) and found two cartoon awesome video clips you can use besides the regular song.
Here are the links to all three:

Also, I took the second youtube video above and added subtitles to it so the students could follow it better.

A fun ppt for your lesson : http://mrsbaiasclassroom.blogspot.kr/2014/11/fun-comparative-adjectives-lesson.html

free to download . it was a blast! :cheesy:


I don't remember if I posted this or not. But this is a comparative worksheet. All the students have to to is answer by using the mathematical symbols of > or < and write the sentence under each line. E.g. X is bigger than O.

Lesson 5 Read & Think

This lesson worked well. Here is what my coteacher and I did. First I asked students to raise their right arm/left arm. Then I quickly told them raise your right arm now raise your left arm and made a game if it. I then showed them the Make the letter "L" with both of your hands trick and explained that when you are little your parents teach you that trick. Next I measured the girls arms and my coteacher measured the boys arms.We only measured the right arms and explained they should be the same. I wrote down my girl's lengths on the board. When they are finished I asked them how to say some of the numbers on the board and then randomly asked different students, "How long is your arm?" I then found out who has the longest arms for both the girl and the boys. Next my coteacher read the Read&Think section with the students. Then use the ppt to have them read out loud again. She then has them take turns reading one by one, sentence by sentence. After we finished reading we had them hit their shoulder and we measured their right arms again. Do the workbook and then finally at the end we found out about other "body secrets."

Here is a Jeopardy-style bomb game that I made for lesson 11.  Students are given statements such as "So-and-so is faster than such-and-such," and they must rework them into the corresponding questions (i.e. "Who is faster? So-and-so or such-and-such?").  Since it is meant to make students think about structure, I think it works best for part 5 (the reading-focused class), but that's just my opinion.  You can edit it however you want.

For motivation and/or review, I also made a short Karate Kid-themed power-point -- which is meant to be shown to the students after watching the "Halloween fight scene" on YouTube -- that goes over possible comparisons between the characters in the scene.

Top Trumps comparison card game.

You'll need to spend quite a bit of time laminating and cutting the cards, but its worth it because all my students loved this. The PPT explains the rules and practices comparative forms, which is important because otherwise they'll just play it in Korean like any other card game. That's the most difficult thing to enforce, so I suggest having some penalty if they speak Korean or don't use the target grammar.

Here's an intro I adapted to make a little more interactive. Students should guess the phrase based on the picture.
