Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Teacher projects many pictures to show things or people are different from each other in order to clarify comparison. - Teacher asks Sts to look at the pictures and ask them "What did you notice about the pictures?" - Teacher clarifies that the lesson is about how to compare between two things, people etc.

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

introduce the sts to comparative and superlatives by Taking three of the pictures that you used in the first activity. Stick them to the board. Under the shorter write "short". Point to the second person and teach/elicit "tall - taller - and on the third the tallest" and write that under the picture, underlining the "er" part (taller), and underline the "est" part (tallest). Next, place three "expensive" object pictures on the board. Write "expensive" under one and then ask what should be written under the other. You will probably get the answer "expensiver" - here teach the other and write form (more expensive) and most expensive.
