Provide your students with engaging, interactive activities to help them improve their usage of comparative and superlative adjectives.

Adjectives are the paint an author uses to create vivid pictures through their text. 🎨

Their descriptions offer details that transport the audience to a time or place, a feeling or memory, a sensation or emotion. 

And when it comes to being the writer, adjectives are the parts of speech most open for interpretation, creating plenty of opportunities for creative expression. 

Practice Identifying Adjectives With an Interactive Activity

This Google Slides interactive activity shows that students can identify and use comparative and superlative adjectives to describe nouns.

Students will use click, drag, and drop adjective puzzle pieces to match the standard, comparative, and superlative forms of different adjectives.
