Introduce these comparative and superlative adverbs task cards to your class to grow their understanding of these types of adverbs!

Comparative and Superlative Adverbs Activity!

Are you teaching your students about the difference between comparative and superlative adverbs? As teachers, we know that comparative adverbs compare two actions, while superlative adverbs highlight one action as the best or most extreme in a group. This concept can be tricky for young minds to grasp, but understanding the difference between them can help students more accurately express comparisons and degrees in their writing!

This fun task card activity gives students the opportunity to practise the skill of differentiating comparative and superlative adverbs. 

To play, tudents will work in groups or individually to answer the questions on the cards and record them on the answer sheet.

Tips for Differentiation of this Adverbs Resource

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your grammar lessons!

In addition to individual student work time, use this literacy game to enhance learning through guided English groups, whole class lessons, or homework assignments. 

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

Begin this lesson with a review of comparative and superlative adverbs by working through our Adverbs Interactive Activity.

Provide students who are having difficulty determining which are superlative and which are comparative adverbs with a printed copy of the presentation. 

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

Challenge higher-ability students to write their own sentences using comparative and superlative adverbs on blank task cards (use Google Slides to edit out existing text).

🛴 Scoot Activity 

Place the cards around the room in numerical order and give each student a recording sheet. Assign students or pairs to a starting point card. Give students time to review the card and record their answers in the corresponding space on their paper. Students will rotate to the next card when you say, “SCOOT!” Continue in this manner until students return to their starting point. 

👋 Exit Ticket 

Use these cards as a formative assessment after your lesson. Pick a random assortment of cards and project them on the board for the whole class to see. Students can record their answers on a sheet of paper, sticky note or notebook. 

Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students

Use the dropdown icon on the Download button to choose between the PDF or Google Slides version of this resource. A recording sheet and answer key are also included with this download.
