Product Description
Students’ descriptive writing comes to life when they learn to use literary devices creatively. This fun game gives students the opportunity to practice both identifying and writing similes and metaphors. Students are split into teams and given game cards with descriptive sentences. They must determine which sentences contain similes, which contain metaphors, and which contain neither. Then they must write original similes and metaphors, all while racing against the clock. Competitive students will love this method of review!
