All Summer in a Day by Ray Bradbury PowerPoint. All Summer in a Day by Ray Bradbury is a science fiction short story that is rich in figurative language and theme. This PowerPoint with animated graphics introduces three common types of figurative language- similes, metaphors, personification- in before reading activities. Then, during reading, students can look for these types of figurative language and write them down in the chart shown on the screen. (Also available separately as a printable) After reading activities include discussion questions and three different writing activities. The last slide has links to the online video, and students can make a Venn diagram to compare the movie to the short story. - Happyedugator
