Want to have a little fun with literary terms while encouraging some critical thinking along the way? Look no further! This game covers terms such as setting, flashback, symbol, irony, foreshadowing, personification, point of view, antagonist, protagonist, foil, exposition, rising action, climax, resolution, conflict, and theme. Play begins when the teacher reads a literary clue from a highly recognizable story, poem, or movie to individuals or teams who try to guess the term and the exact title of the work from which the clue is given.
Game includes 5 rounds of 6 clues each. Perfect opportunity for practice and review of literary elements. One of my class's favorite games! Appropriate for middle school to high school age.
