MY FAVORITE LESSON is this one! This interactive smartboard lesson is full of examples of figurative language including similes, metaphors, personification, onomatopoeia,and alliteration. It is set up to be played as a game with 4 quadrants of questions. Students or groups or teams will choose a question to click on from the gameboard. It will take them to a slide with a question about an example of figurative language. After the question has been answered, students will click on the mystery box to find out how much their question was worth. Full of fun videos!! Teacher or representative will need to keep score. This game can actually be played in a variety of ways. You can divide into 4 teams and teams can only click on their color button for a question.... or you can have the gameboard open to all players and any question may be chosen by any player. Up to the teacher! All slides are self checking and all slides are linked for very easy play. Many direct video links are attached so students will need to watch or listen to a clip to determine what type of figurative language was used. Created with Smart Notebook 14. Great for grades 4-8 depending on the level of the class. Could also be used for grade 3 as a teacher directed lesson or introduction to the different figurative language that authors use.
