Prezi is similar to a power point presentation, but better in so many ways. This prezi teaches students about figurative language. The figurative language covered: similes, metaphors, hyperbole, personification, alliteration, onomatopoeia, idioms. Pictures, video clips and songs are used to help students identify figurative language.

I have used this lesson with 7th and 8th grade students, both mild/moderate sped. and general education students. The visuals, clips and songs make this more accessible for a variety of learners, hitting many modalities. My students had fun with this and enjoyed the lesson. I have 49 minute periods and used 1 period for this lesson. This lesson would also be appropriate for 5th and 6th grade students.
I hope this helps your students as much as it has helped mine.
**This is a zip file, so you will need to know how to unzip. I have a free download on how to do this and tpt also provides instructions on how to unzip. If you are using a PC, getting the prezi downloaded may take several minutes, so please be patient. If you are on a mac it is almost instantaneous.
