It's Not Always What It Seems to Be!

Students write metaphors. In this literary devices activity, students discuss metaphors and how they are used in literature. Students read the poem "Song of a Dandelion Pushing up Through an Urban Sidewalk Crack" and determine any metaphors included in it. Students work in groups to write a metaphor about some social issue, problem or concern.
