This is a game designed to practice the comparative form of short adjectives, it is bestdemonstrated by the teacher first in a plenary session, showing the sort of questions thatcan be asked, that is, questions with the comparative form of the short adjectives inthem. One student could be asked to think of an object and then the teacher could askthe sort of questions that the students have to ask: for example, Is itlarger than a tele-vision ？ Is it heavier than a book ？ Is it longer than the table ？ Is it softer than afootball ？ etc. If a student thinks they know what it is, they can ask: Is it a ... ？Then, once the students have got the right idea about the sort of questions they canask, they can be put into groups of about six. One student must thinkof an object andthe others must ask questions in turn. If a student thinks he knows what the object is,he can ask immediately, Is it a... ？ If he's right, then he will be the next one to thinkof an object. If he's wrong, then he must miss his next turn to ask a question.. Thegroup could appoint a secretary each time to take notes on the questions asked, and re-cap after every fifth question. For example, So, it's smaller than a television, it'sheavier than a book, it's shorter than the table, it's harder than a football'i it's cheap-er than a bicycle. Can anyone guess what it is ？ There should be a maximum number ofquestions asked, say twenty for example, then the group should give up and the studentthinking of the object should tell them what it is.
