If your students have computer access you can ask them to do this online and save printing costs.
 
Print up copies of the quiz.

Tell them to work in teams to answer the quiz questions. Give out the quiz and give them time to find the information. Tell them they also have to write one more question to add on to the quiz before they finish.
 
Once the have completed the quiz tell them the answers and see what they wrote for the final question. It will be interesting to see if the wrote a question including a superlative or comparative form.
 
Next put on the board the words big, bigger and biggest and ask the students to underline similar words in the questions.
 
Get the words up on the board and see if they can add the other forms of the word (i.e. late , later , latest.).  Ask the students to clarify the ‘rules’ for changing the forms of the words. Help them if they don’t know.
 
Ask them to try to write 5 more questions about the information on the chart.
