This activity is a huge hit my classroom! It uses Katy Perry's "Firework" and Gym Class Heroes' "Stereo Hearts" to help students understand and practice identifying extended metaphor.
This activity includes lyric pages for both songs (for marking the text), a copy of Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken" (for practice with classic literature), and a modified TPCASTT template that helps bring the focus of the activity to extended metaphor.
