Get students up and moving around the room while they match 16 poetic devices with their examples in a collaborative whole class activity. Students work in pairs to research their device and then connect them with the BEST example displayed in the room.
This resource can be paired with any text that utilizes poetic devices and is meant as an introduction to a unit, but could also be a great review of those devices. It gets students active and moving around, so it’s also a great way to start off the school year in English class.
Everything you need for this lesson is included in this resource as one pdf. You will also receive a link to the google slides presentation for ease of use.
This resource includes the following:
Google slides presentation with student explanation for the activity
