Are you teaching creative writing? Are your students needing to learn figurative language techniques and terms before you can move on with a writing or poetry unit? This bundle of 5 figurative language resources will not only teach your students terms but have them using figurative language in their own writing!
The included resource can be mixed and matched as you need, but I recommend teaching them in the following order:
- --This lesson includes an introductory presentation to all 10 figurative language terms covered in this unit. Students will find figurative language techniques in expert writing before they create their own examples. This is a fun way to introduce figurative language skills!
- --This handout is a great reference for students. It can be given out during the introductory presentation included with the scavenger hunt, after, or even just given to students who are absent and missed the notes. This is a handy reference for all of the included activities.
- --Now that students have a basic understanding of figurative language, they can try creating their own similes, metaphors, hyperboles, and general sensory descriptions doing something they love--snacking on candy!
- --These are a great review for students before they move on to their final figurative language assessment.
- --This mini-project serves as a great final assessment for figurative language skills. Students will have to not only create figurative language but apply the skills to a writing task.

This resource covers the following terms:
- Implied Metaphor
I know that some of these terms are not technically figurative language, but I chose to base the list on this article from MasterClass.
