Description

Engage students in figurative language practice with this FREE Figurative Language Tasting Activity! This fun, tasting activity will have even the most disengaged students writing similes, metaphors, and hyperbole as they practice using figurative language in descriptive writing.

Stop dragging students through figurative language practice! Replace boring exercises with this hands-on activity.

In this FREE Figurative Language Tasting Activity, you will provide students with small treats (think a mint or a couple of pretzels) to eat. Students will practice basic figurative language techniques by describing the appearance, taste, smell, and eating experience for each treat.

This activity is a great lesson to use at the beginning of a poetry unit, in the first week of a creative writing class, or any time your students are getting squirrelly or apathetic (like right before a break!). You can even use it for additional figurative language practice if you notice students need a review.

This resource includes:

  • Suggested lesson plan
  • NON-EDITABLE Student worksheet
