This activity covers 7 types of figurative language: simile, metaphor, personification, alliteration, onomatopoeia, idiom, and hyperbole.
This activity can be used as an assessment, or it can be completed piece by piece as you discuss each type of figurative language.
Each activity page contains four quilt squares with a circle in the middle. The students will think of an object and write the object's name in the circle. Example: book. Using each type of figurative language, the students are challenged to write sentences about the object. Examples: Hyperbole- The book must have a thousand pages in it. Simile- The book is as blue as the sky. After the students create their sentences, they can draw illustrations and decorate each square to make it look more like a quilt.
This download contains two example pages, two student pages, and a page of figurative language definitions.
I hope your students have fun and enjoy the challenge!
