This digital figurative language resource features seven complete lessons. It is compatible with Google Slides.

Use these activities over the course of seven days to provide targeted instruction to your students. They can be used as a large group activity or in a small group setting.
The slides in each lesson progress from basic to more complex. Answer keys are included. CHECK OUT THE PREVIEW to see some of the slides in these lessons.
Lesson #1: Similes (8 slides)

-The lesson contains five practice slides where students identify similes, write similes, and highlight similes within paragraphs and stories.
-The other slide is the introduction slide.
Lesson #2: Metaphors (9 slides)
-This lesson includes three instructional slides. On the first, a metaphor definition and example is provided. On the second, students learn that "be" verbs are often included in metaphors. The final teacher slide focuses on how metaphors convey a thought more forcefully than a plain statement.
-The lesson contains five practice slides where students identify the two things being compared in a metaphor, write metaphors, and highlight metaphors within paragraphs and stories.
Lesson #3: Personification (8 slides)

Lesson #4: Idioms (8 slides)

-The lesson contains five practice slides where students match the meanings of common idioms with their definitions, highlight idioms, and they use context clues to infer the meaning of two uncommon idioms. There is also a slide where students are presented with sentences, and they must determine whether it contains a simile, a metaphor, an idiom, or personification (the four types of figurative language covered up until this point).
Lesson #5: Alliteration & Onomatopoeia (11 slides)
-This lesson includes two instructional slides related to alliteration. The first one emphasized that alliteration is based on similar beginning sounds and not identical beginning letters. The second instructional slide emphasizes that the similar sounds must be near each other in the sentence. Following these two instruction slides are two practice slides related to alliteration.
-Next, this lesson includes three instructional slides related to onomatopoeias. The first one focuses on the definition. The second instructional slide points out that onomatopoeias are often used as interjections or in a verb form. The final instructional slide emphasizes that words (like "groaned" found in dialogue tags are not recognized as onomatopoeias. Following these two instruction slides are two practice slides related to onomatopoeias.
-The last slide in this lesson presents students with sentences, and they must determine whether it contains a simile, a metaphor, an idiom, an onomatopoeia, alliteration, or personification (the six types of figurative language covered up until this point).
Lesson #6: Hyperboles (7 slides)
-This lesson includes one instructional slide that defines hyperbole.
-The remaining five slides are practice slides. Students identify hyperboles, write their own hyperboles, and highlight hyperboles within paragraphs and stories. On the last slide in this lesson, students must analyze a sentence and determine the type of figurative language used within the sentence. (All seven types of figurative language is included.
Lesson #7: Putting it All Together (6 slides)
The main objective of this final figurative language activity is expose students to multiple-choice questions related to identifying figurative language after reading short passages. Students will likely see questions like these on standardized tests. This lesson includes 3 fiction reading passages. Ten multiple-choice questions are included in this activity.
This digital lesson resource is an expanded version of my printable figurative language trifolds. The practice activities in my printable trifolds are the same as the practice activities in these digital lessons. The main difference between the two versions is that this digital version offers with that are not included in the printable trifolds. I really want to stress the overlap to teachers who have previously purchased my figurative language trifolds so that they are aware of this overlap before they purchase this expanded, alternate version.
