This kid-friendly exercise presents funny examples of hyperbole that kids are familiar with and will have no difficulty pointing out the exaggeration in.
It begins with a fill-in-the-blank definition and is followed by directions to highlight the exaggeration. There is room for them to write a sentence telling what the exaggeration actually means. Feel free to extend the activity with illustrations of their favorite hyperbole example.
