Activity Overview


Rich imagery engages the reader, and figurative language is one element that makes writing more interesting and vivid. In this activity, students choose a form of figurative language, such as metaphor, personification, hyperbole, or simile. Using a grid layout, students find 1-3 instances of that form of figurative language in the text and illustrate it using the Storyboard That library and Photos For Class. Students will enjoy blending the literal and figurative meanings!
