Adjective Worksheets and Activity Ideas

Here are four fun adjective worksheets. Underneath each one one you will find a list of extension activity ideas


The Farmer, the Crows and the Adjectives Worksheet

There is plenty to do in this adjective worksheet and it should easily provide the focus for a 30-60 minute minute lesson.

In the first half of the worksheet, students "treasure hunt"  the adjectives hidden in the picture while they color it in.  The "treasure" is then matched with the list of nouns on the right.

In the second half of the worksheet, the students consider the plight of the farmer when he is attacked by hungry crows. They are then challenged to write a paragraph with adjectives about this.

2. The Puppy Needs a Bone Adjective Worksheet

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.

3. Two Adjectives Worksheet

Colour in the pictures and then 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.

4. Adjectives with Attitude
Colouring Page

Colour 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 their own 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.
