*Some assembly required* In this activity, students will review figurative language, poetic devices, and poetic structure terms by completing an engaging group matching activity. You will give each group of students an envelope that contains the terms, the definition, and an example of each term. They will match the terms with its definition and example. When I used this activity in my class, I gave out colored pens (which we use for poetry analysis) as prizes for the group that completed the challenge the fastest. You can use both the figurative language set and the poetic sound and form terms in the same class period or split them up for two different engaging lessons. At the end of the challenge, you can give each of your students a handout that combines the terms, definitions, and examples and can discuss the words they may not have known. They can then use these handouts to study for the quiz! The quiz includes both sets of words. The first fifteen questions are matching the terms to the definition and the last five ask them to match the terms to examples. I have included the terms, definitions, and examples that you can cut out to put in the envelopes you give to your students as well as the handouts, an instruction slide and the quiz (with answer key)! Enjoy this fun game with your students!
