Every now and then you try something new in class not exactly sure how it will go and you get REALLY lucky. This was one of those activities for me. My kids LOVE this.
This activity practices making comparisons in Spanish. You can also extend it to practice making superlatives. Students are given an envelope full of slips of paper. Each slip of paper has a person or thing on it. The student must draw two slips and of paper and come up with a way to compare the two people or things in Spanish. "Shaquille O'Neil is taller than my Spanish teacher." Or "Spongebob Squarepants is less intelligent than my car." You can do this as a speaking activity, or have students write their comparisons. A sheet for recording sentences in included. The fun of this activity is in the unexpectedness of the comparison. If you want to work on superlatives, have them draw three slips and try to make a superlative about one of the people/things.
One blanks sheet is included so that you can personalize according to your class. Add in student names, the principal, favorite teachers, sports teams, etc. Kids love to see themselves and the things like like included in this activity.
