This is a one-of-a-kind lesson plan that will not only engage your students, but help them on a personal level, sort through their life experiences, so far. This lesson reviews similes and metaphors, while introducing two new figures of speech: PERSONIFICATION and IMAGERY! This gives students an easy way to identify and discuss these two new figures of speech, through music! The song suggestion is a great one to go with: Mansion by NF. In this PDF there is the full lesson plan and copies of the powerpoint that go along perfectly with the lesson plan. I couldn't figure how to upload an editable version of it, so once you've purchased, I can share the google slides with you if you would like to edit it! I used this lesson with my 6th-8th grade English combination class, but also used it in my Art class wth 9th through 12th graders. Every student really got into it. It was awesome!
It was a great way for me to get to know them better, but also for them to get to know me better as a human, since I used my own "mansion floor plan" as an example. The kids loved getting to listen to a modern age song that they could RELATE to! Many students became heavily in love with listening to NF. I think this was an amazing lesson for them and I wanted to share it with everyone to be able to use.
There is NOT an essay prompt included in this bundle.
