This interactive PowerPoint defines and shows examples of metaphors, idioms, similes and personification. Each slide provides a definition in academic language and in kid friendly terms. Each slide also contains examples - both made up and from published literature. In addition, the presentation is made to be interactive. Students are asked questions throughout the presentation to break up the lesson, synthesize what they have learned, apply the terms to new examples and discuss with partners or teammates. A phenomenal way to get students engaged and interested in figurative language.
