  /  Spanish in Context: Using Superlatives


  • Students will compare three or more similar objects in the target language.
  • Students will use adjectives to describe and identify objects.


In this lesson, students continue to practice describing objects at Teotihuacán. They will build off of the content they have learned in the previos two classes. They will speak in complete sentences and use superlatives in Spanish. They will also continue to learn about these ancient pyramids and compare them to other pyramids around the world.


  1. Welcome students and review basic VR controls.
  2. Students review previous content by describing and comparing things in the classroom. Students manipulate IFX objects to demonstrate the sentence frames from the previous classes.
  3. Students will repeat vocabulary words and see images that represent them. They will read sentences to see how the words are used in context.
  4. Students will repeat sentence frames to learn superlatives using the phrases "el más" and "la más."
  5. Students will work together to put post-it notes in the correct order to make sentences that demonstrate the superlative.
