Full Product Description:
6 original reading passages for teaching and reviewing figurative language: simile, metaphor, hyperbole, personification, alliteration, onomatopoeia, idiom, and allusion.

Each of the 6 passages includes 4 activities. Please view the preview file for the first passage and tasks in their entirety.
Task A: Identify Figurative Language - Read the story and annotate (highlight or underline and label) figurative language; includes a checklist of what students should find. There are between 10-14 instances of figurative language in each passage.
Task B: Analyze Figurative Language - Students answer higher-order thinking questions based on the figurative language used in the story.
Task C: Modify Figurative Language - Students choose 5 instances of figurative language from the story and modify them so that figurative language still keeps its basic original meaning.
Task D: Revise Figurative Language - Students revise the paragraph based on the changes they made in Task C.
