Writing - Comparative, Superlative

For writing this morning we were learning comparative and superlative words. We had list of words and on the other two sides we had to write the comparative and the superlative of the word. There were some trick questions like careful and bad. After we had finished that we had to choose one word from the comparative  and superlative section. I decided to do Angry, Angrier and Angriest. We then had to find images of the words we chose.
