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.
