This is a great lesson for beginners to learn about adjectives, comparatives and superlatives. I like to begin by drawing a chart on the whiteboard and explaining the difference between the three. Then I explain what a world record is and show the video of that Danish weirdo trying to set a world record for chopping coconuts. That is a world record for fail right there! Then I begin the PPT. I let the students guess what each of the records is, talk a little bit about the record holders, and have the students help me fill in the chart. I have highlighted a few potential vocabulary words in red throughout the lesson.
There are videos you can show of the records being set for “fastest” and “strongest”, as well as a random compilation of world records that I edited down to the ones the kids find most entertaining. To my knowledge, all records mentioned are current and correct. If you found this lesson useful, be sure to check out some of the others at ESL In Asia
