The author uses many different types of figurative language throughout the story. Some other examples of figurative language that are used are similes, metaphors, personification, idioms, and onomatopoeia. For this activity, students will identify and illustrate three examples of figurative language in Where the Red Fern Grows. Teachers may want to give the students a list of examples, or have them do a “scavenger hunt” either as they read or as an activity after reading.
