Need a Performance-Based Assessment, Bulletin Board Idea, or a Fun Review Activity? Fishing for Figurative Language Activity can be used as a performance-based assessment or guided review lesson. For this activity, students had to choose a sound device, figurative language word, or literary device. Students had to draw three examples of what the word looks like, three examples of what the word sounds like or three written examples, the word, and the definition on the plate. Students decorated their plates using materials in the Art Center.
