Learning Objective

Students will be introduced to seven common types of figurative language. Then, after reading a sentence containing figurative language, students will identify the literary device.


Use this figurative language PowerPoint to introduce seven common types of figurative language to your students. It contains 42 slides and a 4-page companion handout. It focuses on the following literary devices:








The first 14 slides contain a definition and example for each literary device. Following the explanation slide, students choose which of the sentences provided is an example of that particular literary device.

The final 25 slides are multiple choice questions related to the seven literary devices.

***A PowerPoint companion handout is also included in this file. As you advance through the PowerPoint, students can record their answers on the handout. The companion handout is available in both printable format or digital format. The digital version is compatible with Google Slides.**

Also, you DO have my permission to convert this PowerPoint to a Google Slides format to share with your students.
