Let?s Compare: Adverbs of Degree
About the Let?s Compare: Adverbs of Degree Lesson
A beginning lesson on adverbs of degree with explanations and examples of positive, comparative and superlative degrees.
• Introduce students to adverbs of degree.
• Introduce positive, comparative and superlative degrees for comparing adverbs of manner.
• Have students answer review questions and test their knowledge by changing words into different degrees.
Adverbs are not verbs. Instead, they help answer questions about the words they describe. How? When? Where? To what extent (how long? how much? how many?) They can show up in many places in a sentence. You can even have adverbs that answer different questions about the same verb in one sentence.
