Product Description
Students will be given a poetic device and page numbers to do a scavenger hunt of these devices throughout the book. Students will be required to know the term and its definition, identify an example and explain the meaning/purpose of the figurative language used by the author.

The devices included in this activity are: similes, metaphors, hyperboles, imagery, symbols, personification, allusion, idioms, and even a pun (just for fun)


Option One (small groups): Put class in small groups and give each group one or two of the terms. Have them work together fill in the definition and explore examples of those terms in the book.
Example: You could have each group pick five similes and then have one other term to explore so that one group is not overwhelmed by all the similes. There are even more examples than the ones I list on the last page of this activity.*

Option Two (individual): Each student gets all terms and completes charts independently OR each student becomes the expert on only ONE term

Option Three (pairs/partners): Each set of partners works to find and explain 5 examples of the primary types of figurative language found in the novel.

*Teachers may choose to assign the term and give definitions in advance or allow students to choose.
When doing groups I will often assign a color to each group and students receive a small slip of paper with that color on it while they walk in the door so that the groups are selected at random.
