While comparative statements in Spanish are very similar in structure to English ones, students typically require some repetition of application before they feel comfortable with it. Once students have learned the basic formula for comparative statements, they will use this activity to create a T Chart comparing two things across a row. One column can be titled “more ___ than” in Spanish while the other is titled “less ___ than”.
This exercise will also help students strengthen the habit of checking their adjective agreement, since in switching their sentences around to a “less ___ than”, the adjective may need to be changed to agree with what is now stated first in the sentence.
If students are practicing Spanish comparisons for the first time, you may want to have them use only regular adjectives to begin. As they advance, you can have students use the exceptions and/or new adjectives that they research themselves. Students should have fun with their statements and the illustrative cells! They should complete at least 3-4 rows of examples.
