Students always need practice identifying sensory and literary imagery! This activity is designed to provide that practice and works with any text that contains clear and vivid imagery.
Furthermore, this activity can be modified in the classroom depending upon the students' level of understanding, ranging from a closely guided and modeled, whole group activity to independent homework.
This would also be an ideal activity for literature circles!
There are two pages:
Page 1 --
-Identify the title and author of the text.
-Summarize the text.
-Review or develop examples of each type of sensory imagery.
-Identify examples of sensory imagery in the text.
Page 2 --
-Review definitions of literary imagery (metaphor, simile, hyperbole, personification)
-Develop examples of each type of literary imagery.
-Identify example of literary imagery in the text.
