This Fun Giant Eye Adjective Activity will Get Your Students Thinking of their own Adjectives 

Get your students to color in this huge eye while they think of adjectives that could be used to describe a giant.  How about humongous, thundering and bone-rattling to get them started.

To extend on this, ask your students to draw a page with buzzing flies, wriggling worms or a school of fish.  Ask them to add adjectives that could be used to describe their picture or write a sentence describing the picture below.

Cut out the strips and then put them in a container.  Each student can pull one out and write a sentence using it or one student can pull out 3 or 4 and write them on the board and then all the students can use them in sentences.

Extension idea:

Give each student two or more and ask them to color them in.  Paste their finished work onto a poster display about adjectives.  

Arrange the words to form the petals on flowers.  Cut the ends of the rectangles so that they are rounded and pointed at one end and then glue them around a circle.  Add a stem and leaves.
