Instead of asking my students to do a worksheet over similes, metaphors, and onomatopoeia, I asked them to do a mini-project. This project involves the students getting into groups of 3 and assuming the roles of Simile, Metaphor, and Onomatopoeia. Each group was responsible for creating a short skit using these 3 characters. The catch? Each character's name dictates how that character can speak! For instance, Simile can only speak in similes, and Metaphor can only speak in Metaphors. Students can write about whichever topic they wish, so long as they stay within the guidelines.
This product is 2 pages long and contains a complete set of instructions for the students and a rubric for grading purposes.
My principal loved this activity. we used it to help remediate a fig. lang. re-teach group. It is highly engaging and higher level application. You could even modify it by creating another group with different fig lang. terms you are studying.
