PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

NOTE: THIS PRODUCT IS MEANT TO BE USED AFTER READING THE GREAT GATSBY.

Every clue in this unique crossword is a simile, metaphor, hyperbole, or an example of personification from THE GREAT GATSBY. A key word in each clue has been left out, so students must use their knowledge of the story, their critical thinking skills, and maybe most importantly, their imaginations to fill in the blank.

EXAMPLES:

"We ought to plan something," yawned Miss Baker, sitting down at the table as if she were getting into ___. (simile) ANSWER: bed

...[T]he cab stopped at one slice in a long white ___ of apartment houses. (metaphor) ANSWER: cake

[T]he glow faded, each light deserting her with lingering ___ (personification) ANSWER: regret

...[If] one ___ was removed the whole library was liable to collapse. (hyperbole) ANSWER: brick


A FUN WAY TO GAIN AN APPRECIATION FOR FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE!

On  April 20, 2012,  Buyer asked:
I bought "The Great Gatsby Figurative Language" crossword and think it is great! Could you possibly provide me with a key of the TYPE of Figurative Language you intended each clue to be? I was hoping that was going to be the solutions to the puzzle. I see your note that each quote is either a simile, metaphor, hyperbole or personification. It would be REALLY helpful if you'd supply which one each clue is. I want to include that in the instructions to my students, and would really like to know what you think they are since you are the creator. Thanks!

Hi,
I am currently redoing that puzzle. When I upload it onto TPT, you will be notified of the new version and be able to download it for free. Should be some time this week. Thanks for the suggestion--and for making me aware of the glaring error within the puzzle (16 across).

Sincerely,
Pegi Bevins
