Your students can identify similes and metaphors, but do they really understand what the author is trying to say? This pack of 12 figurative language worksheets (part of my Figurative Language Activities Set
provides authentic, contextual examples of simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, idiom, and symbol. Each page contains a quote from a famous person and space for students to analyze and reflect on its meaning in real life.
These are great as figurative language test review activities, graded classwork, or just warm-ups glued into a poetry interactive notebook. The quotes are relatable examples of figurative language, and they emphasize the difference between literal and figurative language, which is super important for middle-school readers!
I hope you and your students enjoy these activities as they strengthen their real-world reading comprehension!
