Activity Overview


As students begin studying the French construction for comparative adjectives, visuals can provide helpful reinforcement. Use simple images with obvious comparative qualities and short sentence descriptions to help students practice their grammar and have fun at the same time. In this activity, students will create a chart that illustrates the comparative and superlative sentences they will write.

This activity can be as simple or as challenging as you would like. Limit your students to comparison with regular adjectives (using plus/le plus or moins/le moins) or add in irregular adjectives (bon/mauvais). To get students started, provide them with an image and sentence in the base form column and ask them to complete the other squares, changing the. To allow for more creativity, show students the example above and ask them to fill in all the squares on their own with the blank template provided.
