Figurative Language Match Up Game
In this game you will work on your own, each student will get a different coloured set of matching cards. Students need to match the figurative language phrase with the word that finishes the sentence, this will require you to think hard about the piece of figurative language and how it could be said in word form.
Once all the phrases are matched with their word, then work as a group to try and sort them into their categories on the coloured paper. Explanations are below.
Extension: Students can write a different word to finish the sentence for each of the figurative language phrases.
Pack up, collect the matching cards, shuffle the cards and put them back in the bag, don’t mix colours.
