Figurative Language enrichment game. Twenty-five questions. First 15 are basic, and the last 10 are from poems. Choices include Simile, Metaphor, Hyperbole, Alliteration, Onomatopoeia, and Personification. Video clip insults. Answer explanations are included after each clip so that the game can also suffice as independent practice if computers are available.
Some people have contacted me through my website about how I play this with an entire class:
I usually have 1 scorekeeper and 1 person progressing the game.
I split the kids into small groups (3-5 per group).
Every group starts with 100 points.
After each answer, right or wrong, I progress to the next group.
I usually put my best groups last so that they do not get an unfair advantage.
When you miss a question, you lose 5.
When you get a question correct, you gain 5.
After each answer/clip, the teacher reads why the answer is correct or incorrect and we progress to the next question.
The group with the most points at the end of a respective game wins.
