In this lesson I have used the Beatles’ changing appearance and musical style to provide students with the opportunity to practice using comparatives and superlatives.
Students compare images of the Beatles from 1963 and 1970. There was quite a change as you will see.
Students then look at the musical progression from I Want To Hold Your Hand through to I Am The Walrus. Again, many students were shocked at how much the songs changed and this really engaged them.
Finally they discuss Beatles’ album covers using both comparative and superlative structures.
I have prepared a PowerPoint presentation and each step of the lesson is included in the notes section at the bottom of each slide.
The PowerPoint can be downloaded here.
I hope your students enjoy it as much as mine did.
