Making Meaning with Melissa


Want to get your students engaged in finding figurative language? Try these task cards that use lyrics from popular love songs!

Each of these 40 task cards included an excerpt of a popular love song (from many genres - pop, country, rock, etc.). In the lyrics is an example of figurative language. Use to have students identify and explain each example, or as a writing prompt for creative writing practice.
