The Adjective Detective... all about adjectives

An interactive resource explaining adjectives, their function and use. The first section explains the use of adjectives and they placement both before a noun and after a noun using a ‘helper’ verb.

It goes on to further explain both comparative and superlative adjectives, the way they are formed and their use.


There is also an interactive quiz and a game for students to play in which adjectives need to be identified to progress through the game. This is a Flash based resource suitable for use on desk top computers and thus interactive whiteboards; it may not be suitable for use on all hand held devices or tablets.
