There are two versions of this product so that you're able to differentiate it for your students' needs.
The simpler version provides eight examples of personification from the novel Homeless Bird by Gloria Whelan. Students must identify what is being personified and also what human quality it is given. Page numbers are listed for contextual support. Then they will rewrite the sentence without using personification to explore why the author chose to use personification.
The advanced version lists the page numbers of the examples, but the students must read those pages to locate them. Then they identify what is being personified and what human quality it is given.
The same key can be used for both versions.
