This is a fun crossword puzzle that gives examples of various types of figurative language and asks students to identify what type each example is.
For example, one crossword clue might say "Time is money" and students will have to identify that this is a metaphor and write "metaphor" into the crossword puzzle in the corresponding place. For my honors classes, I will also have students write on a separate piece of paper the reason WHY each of the clues is that type of figurative language (for example, the previous clue is a metaphor because it compares two unlike things to add meaning).
The answer key and an optional word bank is also included in this purchase.
My students always enjoy crosswords and I've found it to be effective as well. Enjoy!
