Students then have to tell whether each of the following ten sentences is an example of hyperbole or personification. Then there are then nine additional practice worksheets with practice with similes, idioms, metaphors, personification and hyperbole. There is also practice with figurative examples from literature. Students have to identify and give their reason for how they know. These are good practice sheets when introducing figurative language.
