Product Description
This fun activity contains two signs, "Figurative" and "Literal", as well as 14 pairs of sentences -- one that is a figurative statement and one that is the literal version of that statement.

For example, "I'm so hungry I could eat a horse" (figurative) and its pair "I haven't eaten anything at all today".

This sort could be conducted in a variety of ways.

As there are 28 cards total, you may pass one out to each student in the class and ask them to stand beneath their appropriate title (either "Figurative" or "Literal"). Afterwards, the students can work to find their appropriate partner whose statement matches theirs in either a figurative or literal sense. It's an awesome way to get your students thinking and moving and allows for both independent and cooperative learning!

Or, you could print the two labels ("Figurative" and "Literal" OR "Literal" and "Non Literal") out and glue them to either side of a file folder. You can allow for the students to sort out the cards on either side of the file folder, and this activity has quickly become an easy, independent learning activity that could be added to any literacy center!


*Within the document, the pairs are side by side -- the left column represents the figurative statements while the right column represents the literal statements.*
