Celebrate National Poetry Month and Easter at the same with this FREE product!
(UPDATE: This product is now in .ppt format so that the game board and cards are editable!)
Students race to find their teams set of plastic Easter eggs first. Inside each egg is the definitions of 1 of 6 poetic devices: idioms, personification, hyperbole, similes, metaphors and onomatopoeia.
Students must match their set of definitions to the correct poetic device on their game board before the other team.
The fastest team wins!
(NOTE: There is now a free, scavenger hunt version of this activity that is not Easter specific available at this link:
