This Power Point uses riddle poems that contain figurative language such as simile, metaphor, personification, etc. While students can often pick out figurative language, they have more difficulty deciphering it. In this activity students try to solve the riddles by interpreting the figurative language. I usually print the slides and post them around the room. Students travel around the room in groups and work together to solve the riddles. You could also use this as a station activity. At the end, students try to develop their own riddle poem using figurative language.
