This file includes a PDF with 20 QR task cards and 6 vocabulary task cards that can be printed as many times as needed. Instructions (below) are also included in the file.
This activity helps students identify similes, metaphors, personification, alliteration, onomatopoeia, and hyperbole.
Step 1: Make sure students have QR readers on their phones or devices. Some devices, such as the iPhone with the newest OS, can read QR codes directly from the camera. Other devices may not be able to do this. Your students will have to download a QR code reader (most of them are free).
Step 2: Cut out the task cards. Distribute the cards to each student or group.
Step 3: Have students determine which type of figurative language is represented on each task card. Scan the QR code next to the answer that you choose to see if it is correct or incorrect.
There are also task cards with definitions and examples of each type of figurative language in case students are unsure why they got a question wrong. Distribute these cards along with the others.
