Product Description
This 2 page worksheet on Ray Bradbury's historical fiction short story has 3 parts. Part 1 has a word bank of 14 terms, which correspond to the examples of figurative language used in the story: Parallel Structure, Simile, Personification, Foreshadow, Alliteration, Oxymoron, Repetition, Literary Allusion, Symbol, Onomatopoeia, Synecdoche, Metaphor, Contrast, and Pun, and the students must match the term to the correct defintion. (This way, all the students are working with the same definitions.) In Part 2, the students have to match the same figurative language terms to easy examples. (Practice). In Part 3, they have to identify the quoted examples of figurative language taken directly from the text. (Application) Part 3 has 32 quotations; many of them have multiple answers; ie, Henry howled like a hyena. (Alliteration & simile). This can be done in-class or for homework. A two page answer KEY is provided.
