This 28-question assessment (part of my Figurative Language Resource Bundle
) covers figurative language, including metaphor, simile, hyperbole, personification, idiom, and symbol.
- Part 1 is matching examples to types of figurative language.
- Part 2 is multiple choice (identifying examples, interpreting their meaning, and analyzing their purpose).
- Part 3 is sorting examples into categories.
The 38-question study guide covers the same material, but it gives students more chances to explain meanings and write their own figures of speech, ensuring depth of understanding. I always tell my students that if they can do the study guide, they will have no problem with the test!
I believe it's really important to spend time on just figurative language - not mixing it with poetry, story elements, or any other concept until students have a good grasp of the difference between figurative and literal language. I hope these materials help you and your students enjoy the fun of figurative language!
