I used this lesson last week for my higher level students and it was a real hit. Only the second lesson I've ever had where students wanted to stay after the bell to see more. Depending on the class I'd usually only make it until about the biggest mouth slide but they always wanted more. Thanks for a truly wonderful lesson!

Really great lesson, my students really enjoyed it... which is saying something because at the moment they are a pain in the backside.

Thanks!

Here's another one of my lessons on comparing using er and words ending in est.  I use the Guinness Book of Records to keep things fun and exciting.  The ppt file should be fairly self explanatory but let me know if you have any questions.  There's a Simpson's game included which I did not make but I modified it to go with my guinness book lesson.

Please share your comments or questions if you download it.  If you like this lesson my other lessons are linked below:
1. Inventions - http://waygook.org/index.php/topic,5514.0.html
2. World Food - http://waygook.org/index.php/topic,5494.0.html
3. Bucket List - http://waygook.org/index.php/topic,5495.0.html

NOTE: I zipped the lesson folder into one file to make everything tidier to download.  Most of you will have no problems unzipping it I assume.  If you can't open the file, just download WinRAR from the link below and install it.  Then you'll have no problems opening compressed files after that.

This was a brilliant idea. Thank you very much. I think I can use it without changes, which almost never happens.

Hi it was a successful lesson here too.

I made some worksheets to go with it so that my students could follow.

They are attached.

This lesson looks really good and I want to use it for my upcoming open class.  Right now the file I downloaded is a readolny file.  Is there any thing that I can do to change this?  I want to edit it just a little bit and add some review slides from earlier lessons.  Thanks.

Great lesson Adrian,

I really enjoyed this with my after school classes.

It is read only because the font used requires a license.

No disrespect to Shane who made the Simpsons game but I made some changes. Great game but I didn't like seeing "By Shane Teacher - Daejeon " on every slide. So I removed that and also removed the flash scorekeeper. Everything else is the same. I just kept score on the blackboard.

Awesome lesson - my boys loved this... especially when one attempted to convince the class that he was the smartest boy in the world  ;D

I was wondering if someone could post the powerpoint for this lesson.  I can download the rar file and everything works fine but when I try to convert the pptx into a ppt there is always a file conversion problem!  thanks!!

Thanks so much for this lesson, it kept my spawn of satan second grade boys mostly attentive for an entire class period and actually earned a compliment from my co-teacher. I bow down before your powerpoint skills, and that of the Simpson's game creator.

As to the poster wanting the file in Ppt, here it is :)

What are the 'free questions' in the simpsons game meant for?

My 3rd graders are incredibly hard to please and my KT has given up and actually teaching them anything and has ordered me to play games with them the rest of the year.  But this kind of lesson is something that I think that they will all enjoy!  Thanks a bunch for all of your hard work.
