Determine the Meaning of Common Allusions

An allusion is a word or phrase that hints at something or someone well known without directly mentioning the source. Featuring sentences with nine different literary, mythological, and biblical allusions, this figurative language worksheet allows seventh-grade students to practice interpreting these common figures of speech. Learners will use their background knowledge and sentence-based context clues to determine the meaning of common allusions. As a bonus challenge, students can try their hand at determining the sources of these familiar references.
