Included in this product are 31 figurative language task cards. Some of the cards contain simpler examples of figurative language. 18 of cards contain excerpts from poems and famous literature (ex. Pride and Prejudice, The Heart of Darkness, poems by Emily Dickinson and William Wordsworth.) The rigor increases with this product when you have the students choose several of the cards and explain what the author meant by the figurative language. I usually have my students choose 5 cards and explain the meaning of the figurative language.
These work great in centers or station activities or as extra practice for early finishers or tutoring.
Also included is an answer sheet and answer key.
