This lesson would be perfect for a teacher in a hurry or a cover lesson as all student instructions are included.
Get students to identify figurative language in an engaging way by reading and/or listening to music lyrics along the zombie / death theme. Even more importantly, these activities will build your students' confidence in discussing the impact of figurative language as used in specific texts. It's an easy hop from these activities to applying their skills to poetry.
I am used to teaching mixed-ability classes with EAL students and all my students can rise to this challenge, from those who are below to those who are above grade level. (Please check suitability of the topic for younger students, although I do my best to avoid gory images.)
Produced on printer-friendly paper, these task cards are sure to be a resource you use time and time again.
* full teaching notes
* lyrics of 3 songs on the theme of zombies & death
* links to the songs
* 2 student worksheets with instructions and answer keys
* ideas for how to use the materials for a physical movement activity
* suggestions for how to use the materials as a discussion activity
This product would complement any curriculum that focuses on the development of figurative language identification and analysis.
