Students will review figurative language definitions and examples as they try to crack Cupid’s lock. This escape room styled activity reviews the following figurative language types: alliteration, metaphor, symbolism, irony, hyperbole, assonance, onomatopoeia, personification, allusion, pun, imagery, simile, idiom, and oxymoron.
Your download includes the following:
* student handout that includes…
14 figurative language terms and definitions
16 sentences to practice identifying the figurative language used
* teacher instructions and tips page
* answer key for codes and secret phrase
* editable Google form that can be customized to fit your needs
* reward cards printable for students who crack the code
In this online activity, students input answers into a Google Form and are automatically told if their code/answer is correct. If not, they have to try again. If it is correct, they are awarded a letter toward the secret phrase at the end.
This product can be used as an introduction for student discovery or as a review for students who are already familiar with the types of figurative language.. Facilitation of the game (from me giving instructions to the first group solving the secret phrase) takes anywhere from 20-50 minutes depending on grade level of students and familiarity of figurative language types.
This activity is primarily geared towards middle and high school level but could easily be adapted for younger grades.
