Students are introduced to and view examples of the four key figures of speech. They then read fifteen sample sentences and identify the figure of speech in each as well as underline where it appears in the sentence. Finally, they try and write their own example of each figure of speech type. Perfect as a review or a first introduction in Grades 4-6. This lesson relates to Common Core Standards in Language Arts for those grades. This is a properly formatted PDF and looks much nicer than the thumbnail image appears!
