Figurative Language Test Prep Task Cards

Do your students need practice interpreting figurative language? If so, look no further! This set of 16 task cards will help students to master those tricky phrases that stump so many of our students. Each task card contains an excerpt of literature or poetry featuring classic examples from the public domain. Each piece of text contains one or more examples of figurative language. Students will need to read and interpret each example of figurative language in context. Each piece of text is followed by a multiple-choice test-prep question. This set of task cards is designed to support students in grades 6-8. These are perfect for test-prep, morning work, review, gallery walks, exit slips, and more!

Students will practice identifying and interpreting non-literal figures of speech such as:

-Similes

-Metaphors

-Personification

-Hyperbole

-And More!

Question stems range from those that are seen on many 6-8 End-of-Grade tests including:

-What is the effect of the simile in the first sentence?

-What did the author mean by the phrase ________?

-Based on the sentences above, what does the figurative language below describe?

-What is the effect of the personification in the last sentence?

-What is the effect of comparing _____ to _____?

-And more!
