Adjective Worksheets and Activities

Here are four fun adjective worksheets and activities.  These are designed to be used when you are introducing or revisiting adjectives.  There are also activity ideas and links to more adjective resources below.

Your students can search for adjectives hidden in a picture and then use them in a sentence.

Your students can identify the adjectives on stepping stones to create a trail for a puppy who is trying to find some bones.

Your students can write down adjectives for several pictures and then use them in a sentence.

Your students can colour in the page of block letter adjectives.

Farming Descriptions Activities

Color the picture of the farmer and then write two adjectives to describe each of the following things: clouds, house, farmer, sky, vegetables, soil, windmill, overalls, hat, shoes, gloves.

Imagine that these crows are going to attack the farmer and try to eat some of his crop. Write a paragraph (3-4 sentences) explaining what happens. Make sure you use plenty of adjectives
so that your writing is interesting.



Puppy Trail Activities

Adjectives are words we use to describe things. Help this puppy find the way to his delicious bone below.  You can do this by coloring in the stepping stones with adjectives on them.

To extend on this, take 20 or more pieces of A4 paper and write an adjective on each one in large letters.  Take another 20 or more pieces of A4 paper and write a noun on each one in large letters.  Tape these to the ground in a random pattern.  Students have to get from the start to the finish stepping only on adjectives.  You could use different colored paper for the start and finish. 

A simpler version is to do 4 or 5 rows and challenge students to get from one side to the next without stepping on a noun.



Two Examples Worksheet Activities

Write two adjectives that you could use to describe each picture.

To extend on this, ask your students to write two activities you can use to describe the chair your sitting on, your hair, you shoes, your lunch, your fingernail, your teeth and your feet.  Encourage your students to think of their own noun ideas.


To extend further, ask your students to draw a picture of a monster standing on a big rock.  Fill the rock with words you can use to describe the monster. Other possibilities are a pirate on a treasure chest, a mermaid on a beach, a fairy on a mushroom and an ant on a cube of sugar.



Arty Letters Activity Ideas

Color in these words. The letter designs are inspired by the meaning of the word.

To extend on this adjective activity ask your students to make some of your their creations.  What sort of letters could you use when you  write rainy, feathery, speckled, fluffy, grubby or grassy?

You could take this idea further and ask them to turn one adjective into a 3D piece of art work.  Use cotton balls for cloudy, sandpaper for rough,wire for wiry or dirt for dirty. Challenge your students to come up with their own ideas.
