This is an absolutely wonderful animal lesson that can be used to teach comparatives and superlatives. I wish I could take credit for it, but it is almost entirely the work of Leo Fuchigami, a very talented teacher and Powerpointer. I made some small changes to the flow of the PPT and the length of the video clips, but my contributions were very minor.
The rules are explained in the PPT, but basically the class is split into teams and they must choose a type of animal and an adjective, and decide which one is the fastest, slowest, smartest etc. If they are correct they get points and a chance at the bonus question. If they are wrong, the other team answers the bonus. Clicking on the blue house at the end of each slide returns you to the homepage. Certain choices result in free points and a video being played. I have taken them out of the PPT because I find that makes them less choppy, but you can re-embed them if you so desire. This is one of the most impressive lessons I have seen yet, and one no expat teacher should be without. If you enjoyed this lesson, please be sure to check out English Idioms
