Activity Overview


When teaching poetry, it is often helpful to refresh or introduce students with technical words. “Metaphor", "alliteration", "personification", "imagery", "apostrophe", and "assonance" are a few important terms.

After you have read the poem, ask your students to do a scavenger hunt using the Storyboard Creator. Give them the list again and have them create a storyboard that depicts and explains the use of each literary element in the poem. They will have an absolute blast and gain mastery of the words.


Literary Elements Example


DESCRIPTION EXAMPLE
Alliteration Repetition of consonant sounds at the beginnings of words in a sentence or line “the claws that catch!”
Internal Rhyme Rhyming that occurs within a single line “He left it dead, and with its head”
Metaphor An implied comparison between two things “The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame”
Imagery The use of descriptive or figurative language to create vivid mental imagery that appeals to the senses “One, two! One, two! And through and through / The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!”
Consonance The repetition of consonant sounds within a line “Come to my arms, my beamish boy!”
Portmanteau A word whose form and meaning come from a blending of two or more words “Galumph” (gallop, jump)
