Divide the class into four groups of students. Have one student be the  secretary in each group. Give each group the following food items: M&Ms, potato chips, marshmallows, and pickle slices. These items cover all shapes, colors, tastes, and textures.

Pass out each food item. Tell students that each group must come up with as many adjectives as possible to describe that item. Give three to four minutes for each one. Once time is called, the secretary stops writing, and the groups await the next item. Once all have finished, the group with the most adjectives will win an additional prize. Have students take turns coming to the blackboard or overhead to write down the discovered adjectives.
