Using this worksheet, teachers can assess whether students understand not only what is being personified in a sentence, but also why that personification is used. How does this literary device enhance a text? This assignment should be given as a follow-up to a personification lesson or as a pre-assessment to evaluate what the students already know. An extension activity could be to have students create their own similar worksheet and switch with partners or to write their own story using personification.
