Figurative Language Jeopardy style game show for 4th-9th Grade!
Want to have some fun practicing figurative speech? Here is a suggestion: a GAME SHOW!! Five fun categories that will get your students actively engaged.
I've added some differentiation to this game show!! Most slides have a blue screen covering the multiple choice answers. The student must look at the question and answer on his own. OR, the teacher can just click the blue screen to show the answer choices. A great way for older students to come up with their own answers, but still have the opportunity to click to see how they matched up with what was provided. Either way, points are still awarded to correct answers.
Similes- (ex) What is the meaning of this simile? Zoe's smile is as bright as the sun.
Metaphors- (ex) What is the meaning of this metaphor? Anson is a big chicken.
Personification - (ex) Which sentence uses personification? The ice cream looks delicious. The ice cream is calling my name.
Alliteration - (ex) The girl grabbed the __ goose. (golden, squawking)
Idioms- (ex) What is the meaning of this idiom? Sal is feeling under the weather. She needs an umbrella. She doesn't feel well.
These games do not appear to work on Macs. If you have a Mac, please pass on buying this product.
You AND your kids are going to love choosing which "contestants" team they are on. When you get the correct answer, check it on the screen, then click YOUR team's contestant to be awarded the points!
Having problems? Don't fret! And certainly don't give feedback yet! Let's get this game going! Just drop me an email at iTeachTinyToes@gmail.com so I can get it working for you. Then, of COURSE you'll want to leave some love so you'll get credits for future TpT purchases! Also, let me know which contestants you'd like to see on the show!
If you have a smartboard or any other type of interactive whiteboard, you can also use the projection from those and just use the interactive portion without having to convert the file to whatever it is you use! If you're able to "play" a regular powerpoint, you should be able to play this one too!
