Christmas Activity: Identify figurative language in Christmas songs. Students have to read through the lyrics of different winter tunes and Christmas songs and identify types of figurative language, such as metaphor, simile, personification, hyperbole, or idiom. Lyrics have examples highlighted in different colors, so they can try to figure out the color code. Includes a chart they can fill out as they go through the songs. Each song has a snowflake link to a music video of the song. You can minimize the linked page while the song is playing if you wish to stay on the slide with the lyrics. Five songs...fun activity for the holidays. Color code key is at the end, so they can check their answers, and a name that tune/figurative language quiz at the end, with key. Happy holidays! This is a PowerPoint version of my popular SMARTBOARD activity, created for you by request. Have fun!
(This is brand new and shouldn't have any problems with links. However, if you ever find a broken link, please let me know and I will fix it. Links can change over time, and what works this year may not next year.)
