Introducing or reviewing hyperbole with your students? This two-sided worksheet will be helpful in concept introduction, as well as in enhancing student understanding.
On side one, students use a scaffolded format to fill in the basics of hyperbole and why it's a commonly used form of figurative language. Students review examples, and then practice identifying the point being made in a series of hyperbolic statements.
On side two, students read a free-verse poem containing several examples of hyperbole. Students identify and explain the hyperbole within the poem, and then discuss why the poet chose to use hyperbole. As a final activity, students are given a related prompt and asked to come up with their own examples of hyperbole.
Answer keys are included, and are great to display during the note-taking process.
