Then, also within this file, there is a Jeopardy Power Point game to help review and study various aspects of figurative language. This is a classroom game that students enjoy and play as teams.
Lastly, there is a 2-page short story that includes about 20 examples of figurative language. Students will identify the different types of figurative language throughout the short story. This story and work that goes with it can be used as an assessment of their understanding and ability to identify figurative language in a piece of text.
While this file includes enough for a 3-day lesson, you can pick and choose pieces from the file to use at any time at your discretion. The jeopardy game alone is a great review of figurative language!
