Figurative It Out: Figurative Language in Children's Poetry

Seventh and eighth graders identify figurative language in children's poetry and create their own to post to a class wiki. They search a library web browser for children's poetry, read several poems, and identify simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, and puns. Finally, they create their own poems and identify the figurative language in classmates' poetry to analyze its effects.
