Reviewing comparative adjectives can be a great way to integrate a vocabulary lesson about shades of meaning. Students use sets of words like spicy, spicier, and spiciest to “rank” or level different situations.
For examples, students could determine that peppers are spicy, but they have degrees of spiciness! A jalapeno pepper is spicier than a bell pepper, but the Carolina Reaper chili pepper is spiciest of all. Students select any adjective… cute, small, happy, dark, squishy… and they choose a category or grouping that could be ranked into three levels.
