PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teach the difference between figurative and literal language with this set of two practice worksheets (part of my Figurative Language Resource Bundle).
The first page is a writing activity that pushes students to come up with more interesting and vivid descriptions; for each sentence, students must use a figure of speech (metaphor, personification, etc.) to communicate the same idea more vividly. There are hints provided as to which type of figurative language to consider, but of course students may surprise you with brilliantly creative figurative language!
The second activity allows students to explore the difference between figurative and literal through illustrations. Four examples of figurative language are given, and students must first identify the type (metaphor, personification, etc.); then they are asked to draw a picture of what the literal and figurative meanings would be.
I LOVE the work students produce during these activities - it's such a great chance for them to be creative, perhaps be a little silly, and improve their reading and writing at the same time.
