1. Prepare enough flash cards and pictures to give to each group.
1. Review what adjectives are and ask the pupils to suggest examples: wide, gold, clever, happy.
2. Review what opposites are and ask the pupils to suggest examples of opposite adjectives: big and small, tall and short.
3. Organise the pupils into groups and give each group a set of flash cards, a picture of a gnome and a picture of a giant and a piece of manila card.
4. Give each group some scissors and glue.
5. Explain that they need to stick the two pictures on opposite sides of the card. Then they have to choose the correct adjectives from the flash cards that match the pictures and stick them around them.
Ask each group to stand up and present their finished piece of work to the group. Ask them to explain the choices of adjectives they made.
Instead of giving the pupils flash cards with adjectives already written on them give them blank pieces of paper and a marker pen. The pupils will have to think of the adjectives themselves, which makes the task much more challenging.
Change the pictures that you give to each group to allow for a greater variation of adjectives.
