Students will explore six different types of figurative language in classic and popular song lyrics.
Figurative Language Covered:
There are nine songs that include a variety of classic to currently popular songs. At the top of each song page I have included the types of figurative language included in the song.
What I do in my classroom is give each student a copy of the lyrics and then play the song.
While the song is playing, I ask students to try and find the lines that exemplify the figurative language in each and highlight them. After the song is over, we go over what the kids found as a whole group.
I did this lesson for the second time last year and my students love, love, LOVED it!
