Activity Overview

As students add more French adjectives to their repertoire, they will need to practice proper spelling and placement of each adjective. In particular, it is important that they distinguish standard French adjectives from BANGS adjectives (Beauty, Age, Number, Goodness, and Size). In this activity, students will create a chart that illustrates the agreement between a noun and two adjectives.

The template included with this activity has pre-filled the adjectives students will use, but you can edit it as desired. Students will work with one regular adjective and one BANGS adjective for each sentence, and provide an illustration for each scenario and sentence they write.

Here are a few starter sentences you can use in your English column:

  • I ate two large oranges today.
  • There is a pretty pink flower in my garden.
  • The tired old dogs sleep.
  • Our good cars are new.
  • The friendly little children ate lunch.
  • The bad apple is disgusting.
  • His cat has a long, yellow tail.
