Games are often students’ favorite way to learn! This fun board game will provide students with practice identifying six types of figurative language: simile, metaphor, alliteration, onomatopoeia, idiom, and personification.

The object of the game is to be the first to reach the Writer’s Toolbox. Along the way, when students land on a colored box, they must take a card with the same color. After reading the sentence on the card, they must name the type of figurative language being used. There are also picture boxes that move players ahead or send them back to start!

This game is ideal for grades 4-6 and advanced 3rd graders.
