PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Need something to push your students into higher level thinking? Get their creative juices flowing and reinforce figurative language with this fun lesson.

Students will follow several steps to create figures of speech riddles. Through a sensory tour, forced associations, and visual representations, students will create a book of riddles for their peers to solve. By writing and solving riddles, this forced association activity ties into a theme of secrets.

This highly detailed file focuses on this evocative question: How can you develop more creative thinking?

This lesson does not go into the basic information on these figures of speech: similes, metaphors, and personification.This is an extension activity assuming the students are already familiar with these terms.

You get great resources with this file: sensory tour, extension activity graphic organizers, riddle directions, peer review sheet, rubrics and detailed directions. I've used this activity with gifted 6th graders, but it would easily work with high level 5th, and then 7th-8th graders.

Looking for more extensions for figures of speech? Here is a mini-unit with poetry ideas:
