(Reflection questions included)
Kids have difficulty identifying and properly labeling figurative language. But we've had a lot of fun in class with this Figures of Speech activity in a dialogue format. Kids get to write and perform their dialogue through role play; a fun technique for all, but an especially useful tool for tactile learners and hyperactive children.
I've found a two page dialogue sufficient to teach the concept. Feel free to have students do this writing/thinking activity more than once.
