Metaphors! Metaphors are amazing! Metaphors are a figure of speech that help to take writing to the next level! This generic metaphor activity may be used with any piece of literature, and students may use their own independent reading books to complete the activity. The exercise gives metaphor examples from the book, The One and Only Ivan. In addition, the exercise gives students an opportunity to hunt for metaphors in pieces of literature as well as to create their own metaphors.
A metaphor IS a great writing TOOL! Enjoy!
