This tic tac toe activity for writing about figurative language (part of my Figurative Language Activities Bundle
) allows students to choose from nine engaging writing prompts! They will use metaphor, simile, personification, and symbolism in writing; they will evaluate the use of hyperbole and idioms; and they will think creatively about all types of figurative language while elaborating with facts they've learned as well as personal experiences.
Use these prompts as a cumulative assessment for a figurative language unit, a fun way to practice skills, a test review, or essay starters!
There is a writing page included with space for three paragraph responses to provide structure for students who need it and encourage all students to follow directions.
