This set of activities has been designed to accompany the reading of the short story “The Most Dangerous Game.” Each of these activities works well for assessing students’ knowledge of figurative language including similes, metaphors, hyperboles, and personification. One of the included activities requires students to sort 20 examples of figurative language into the correct figurative language category. This is perfect for struggling readers who might be overwhelmed by revisiting the entire text! The second activity requires students to go on their own "hunt" through the text to identify and categorize. examples of figurative language. This option is great for students who are ready to be challenged as they dig into the text after a first reading to "hunt" down key examples of figurative language. These activities provide a fantastic opportunity to assess your students' ability to recognize and categorize figurative language, as well as the opportunity to review and reteach figurative language while helping students realize the impact of such vivid figurative language on the reader of a text as suspenseful and exciting as "The Most Dangerous Game."
