Here's a hands-on, creative way for your students to practice differentiating between hyperboles and idioms! This is an engaging activity. Students begin by reading sentences in glasses. If the sentence contains an idiom, they color the liquid in their glass yellow (for idiom-ade). If the sentence in the glass contains a hyperbole, they color the liquid in the glass brown (for hyperbol-tea). The finished products make a unique bulletin board or fun school hallway display! It can also be used as a novel entry in an interactive notebook!

Student-friendly directions are included so that you can place the directions under your document camera, and students can refer to them as they complete the project. (An answer key is also included.)
