Figurative language is such an important aspect of ELA. Students need to be able to identify, understand, and analyze figurative language in stories, novels, and poetry. They need to be able to use it in their writing and to explain its purpose and effect.
Whatever your unit, this figurative language truth or dare game is an excellent complementary activity. You can use it as a whole class review of figurative language, as a small-group activity, or even as a station exercise. Whether you're reading short stories, engaged in a novel or literature circles, studying a play, analyzing poetry, or reviewing for an exam, this game is sure to be a crowd pleaser for students in grades 7-10.
This game covers a handful of figurative language terms, including:
simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, understatement, assonance, alliteration, imagery, tone, mood, symbolism, metonymy, synecdoche, paradox, oxymoron, allusion, situational irony, idiom, pun, and onomatopoeia.
