While learning to use Spanish adjectives in the superlative, students will need to practice the formula as well as practice paying attention to adjective agreement. In this activity, students will create a persona and practice using the superlative structure. Have students select the spider map storyboard template and place their chosen persona in the middle.
The example storyboard uses “the most egotistical man in the world” as its central character. From there, each connected cell illustrates a facet of the chosen persona using superlative statements. Students should have fun with their choices! The examples used in the model storyboard are:
Students should complete at least four cells, but you may want them to have more. You may also want to consider whether or not students are using the four exceptions of mejor, peor, mayor, and menor, examples of más and menos, or if their cell examples will be limited to basic adjectives and only the use of más. To reinforce the superlative structure, have students change the color or capitalize the words involved in expressing the superlative. Further challenges can be introduced by asking students to vary their sentence structure and verb use.
