Instructional Ideas
  • Use the information on the worksheets in a presentation to augment your lesson on figurative language
  • Assign the packet at the beginning of a writing unit, and have kids work on the activities over the course of the unit as they become relevant to your curriculum
  • A good companion to Elements of Poetry
Classroom Considerations
  • One lesson requires different colored highlighters; if you don't have them on hand, use markers or have kids note the different uses of figurative language another way
  • Could be appropriate for both upper-elementary learners as well as high schoolers
  • None
