This is a lesson I came up with first while getting my masters. I had to create a 5 minute lesson and make sure my objective was met by the end of it. I then used it for a 15 minute interview lesson with a real 7th grade class (I got the job!). This is perfect to use for an interview lesson, demo lesson, or just to do a mini lesson on figurative language!
Students learn about hyperbole, simile, and metaphor using a fun, collaborative powerpoint, spoken word poetry, and exit visa. I included both powerpoints - one only for hyperbole (5 minute lesson) and one for simile, metaphor, and hyperbole.
This lesson includes the PowerPoint, lesson plans, exit visa, link to spoken word poem, worksheets, and more! It is Common Core aligned, fun, and enjoyable! The the staff, students, and my professor loved it.
