This is a FUN AND CHALLENGING way for your students to learn, review, or master the most common figurative language devices found in the English Language. The figurative language devices covered are: simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, idiom, and alliteration.
The Figurative Language Bingo Game is perfect for your middle school classroom (Grades 6-8+), but we've also used this resource with our 5th graders. So it really depends on where you are in your instruction with your students!
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THIS RESOURCE:
- Instructions for Use:
Detailed teacher instructions to make this as easy to implement in your classroom as possible.
- Student Cheat Sheet:
A 1-page worksheet / review that provides students with definitions and examples of each of the types of figurative language devices found on the bingo boards.
- 35 Figurative Language Bingo Game Boards:
We have included a black and white version for friendly printing OR a color version! 50 game boards total (35 B&W and 35 color). Each game board has 16 boxes on it filled with the different figurative language devices covered: simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, idiom, and alliteration.
- Terminology Calling Cards:
Instead of Bingo numbers and letters, you have letters and each of the concepts listed (i.e. "G - Hyperbole"). Also comes in color or black and white for friendly printing!
- Answer Key:
We've provided an answer key for you to make checking students' boards a breeze!
This is such a fun way to review these concepts with your students. We know you'll love this activity :)
