This PowerPoint presentation introduces a type of figurative language that is difficult for many students - metaphors - through commonly recognized Valentine's Day sayings. Students will see how visualizing a metaphor by actually drawing a picture will prove that the saying is not literally true.
A number of examples and opportunities for student participation are included in the slides.
The clip art and design of the slides, with their silly valentines, is attractive for middle grade students.
