Students use metaphors to create themselves made up of objects that represent their hobbies, passion, or interests.
You have the choice to assign an essay or poem.
A mini-lesson on metaphors is included as a refresher for students returning in the fall. There is a fantastic link to a video explaining metaphors. The mini-lesson may be more appropriate for middle school. The activity can be easily modified for lower grades.
Two versions are in this packet, so there are duplicate pages, but some pages are styled for elementary vs. middle school.
Included in the package:
Teacher Instruction and mini-lesson including video link
Metaphor student instructional page with sample
Sample Poem for students to practice identifying metaphors
Key to Sample Poem
Student Instructional page for writing activity
