Product Description
Students’ descriptive writing springs to life when they learn to add creative literary devices. This fun showdown gives students the opportunity to practice creating original hyperboles. Students are split into teams and given cards that prompt them to describe different classroom objects with positive and negative hyperboles. Then the teams must duel as they read their opposing hyperboles at the front of the class. This activity prompts many laughs and plenty of good practice!
