After teaching figurative language, this game is perfect in order to assess their understanding. This is a "I have, who has game". Students are broken up into 4 separate groups (7 students per group) and each student receives one card (there are 28 cards total). A student will read their example on their card. The person with the correct figurative language for that example will then say "I have (figurative language)." Then, that same student will read their example and so on. Some allusions are very obvious, so asking students to explain the meaning of the allusion will help in assessing whether students truly understand the lesson. Please download the preview if you would like to see a sample of the game.
Figurative Language covered: hyperbole, simile, metaphor, onomatopoeia, alliteration, personification, and irony
** On the card, it will state "Who has the FL example for"... FL = figurative language! :)
