This could simply be a classroom discussion or you could ask your students to write their ideas in a workbook.

Ask your students to match up the adjectives with the nouns by drawing lines to join pairs of words: orange, meal, black, dog, healthy, turtle, slow, letter, perfumed, bird, short, beach, sandy, car, metallic, shirt, striped, frog, young, dress.   They can also color in the word pairs so that they are the same color.

Extension activity idea:
