Third and fourth graders study literary devices and figurative language. They view a PowerPoint presentation (which you must create) to review hyperbole, idiom, simile, and metaphor. They read and discuss the book There's A Frog in My Throat, and sketch a slide of a saying they select. They create a PowerPoint slide and include pictures to illustrate their saying.
Fifth graders complete a worksheet. In this figurative language instructional activity, 5th graders review the definition of metaphors and provide examples. Students learn about similes and the use of figurative language. Students read a poem and identify the metaphors and similes present.
We often spend a lot of time focusing on similes and metaphors, but that's because they're used so frequently in our spoken and written text! With this three-page packet, learners explore examples of similes and metaphors before creating a few of their own. Then, they read the second page and decide whether a simile or metaphor is being used in each sentence. The third page contains the answers.
After your learners are familiar with the definition of simile and metaphor, provide them with this reference guide. First, it details the definitions of both simile and metaphor, but then it explores mixed metaphors, overused metaphors, phrases that include both similes and metaphors. An interesting page to deepen your learners' understanding.
Designed for a class that is more than familiar with similes and metaphors, this worksheet provides learners an opportunity to practice creating examples of their own and incorporating those examples in their writing. The directions are simple, and writers must enter their creative state to complete this paragraph assignment.
