This is a great way to preview or review common figurative language with your students. All you need is the cards included in this download, and some sheets of poster paper! Students compete against each other to determine which type of figurative language is displayed in each lyric.
45 different song lyrics are included in an easy-to-cut format, all from popular songs and artists. Singers like Beyonce, Eminem, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Walk the Moon, Selena Gomez, Nas, and Taio Cruz are all represented, to give students a wide variety of musical artists and genres to recognize.
Directions, an answer key on PowerPoint slides, and a separate answer key with all the song artists and titles is included in your download.
This is a great activity for middle or high school students. I hope you enjoy!
