Did you know that Rock Stars are Really Poets in Disguise!?! Teach your students all about figurative language through music! Create an engaging space by transforming your classroom into a music studio, stage, or karaoke club!
This lesson focuses on using the following examples of figurative language in popular songs:
Students will work in groups identifying the figurative language presented, determine why they think the author included this specific example, determine how it contributes to the meaning of the poem, and creating other examples of figurative language that maintains the meaning.
They will then put all of their skills to use and write their own poems!
