PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Figurative Language using Songs
What is more motivational for a group of students than watching music videos and reading lyrics? This lesson is a great way to either introduce or to reinforce similes and metaphors. The songs also lend themselves to discussions of theme and symbolism. The students will be looking at five songs from a different angle rather than text in a book.
I have included 6 songs that portray figurative language. I have included background info on the songs and suggested discussion questions to use following each song / music video to reinforce the meaning of each of the figurative language types.
If introducing the figurative language it is best to work through the examples as a class; if used as a reinforcement - the students can do more of the work independently or in small groups.
(I find the music videos on youtube and play them for the students so they can see what the musical artist had in mind for the audience.)
