This figurative language activity is the perfect way to review figurative language in your classroom. Use it as a center activity on figurative language, or divide your class in half and have the students work through the chain of figurative language from start to finish. Simply download and print the cards. The first card in the chain says, "I will start," and will ask for a certain type of figurative language. The student with that type of figurative language on his/her card reads the card and then tells the group the kind of figurative language that will be read next. The round continues until all students have read their card and the last student reads the card that says, "This is the end of the game." Each download includes 2 rounds of "I Have...Who Has?". One round has a blue background the other has a green background so they will next get mixed up. Each set contains 14 cards. Figurative language reviewed includes: simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, onomatopoeia, cliche, and idiom. Cards also review: synonyms, antonyms, homophones, and transition words.
