PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a highly engaging activity centered on figurative language.

Students cut (or use pre-cut) pieces of a puzzle. They match figurative language terms to descriptions of each term and examples. For example: "definition of hyperbole" will be matched with "an exaggeration." The pieces will ultimately all fit together.

This activity can be used as a preassessment, a post-lesson follow-up activity, a general review, or a worthwhile filler activity. It’s also easy to have students use individually or in pairs or groups.

The time it will take students to complete this puzzle will depend on their familiarity with the subject. If being used as a preassessment, it’s likely to take longer than it would as a follow-up activity.

This puzzle includes definitions and examples for the following terms:

Idiom
Metaphor
Simile
Hyperbole
Personification
Onomatopoeia
Alliteration
