Comparatives and superlatives go fish

This is a card game to review comparative and superlative adjectives. Ss play in small groups (4-6). Before starting the game, print 1 copy of all the pages per group, laminate them and cut them out.

Shuffle the picture cards and deal five cards out to each player. The object of this game is to get rid of all of your cards by collecting opposite pairs. The first player starts by either:
- placing down an opposite pair saying, for example, “I have got tall, taller, the tallest and short, shorter, the shortest”.
- or asking another player for a matching card. For example, if they have “tall, taller, the tallest”, they should ask to any player they choose: Have you got “short, shorter, the shortest”? If the student asked has the card, he/she gives it to the first player who places the pair cards down on the table. If the student asked hasn’t got the card, he/she should say: “No, I haven’t. Go fish.” And the first player picks up a card from the draw pile (the sea).

Players continue asking others for cards and drawing from the pile. The first player to make opposite pairs out of all their cards is the winner.

Another option would be that play continues until all the cards have been collected in pairs. The player with the most pairs is the winner.
