Give kids a chance to think creatively about metaphors by letting them write their own! Students will stretch their imaginations and figurative language skills as they think of ways to describe their class, bedroom, and more.
What in the world? Your students will have a blast unpacking the meaning of common idioms and creating original art as they learn the difference between literal and figurative interpretations of sayings.
Use this activity to help students find and decipher metaphors in the context of short passages. Students will read the passages, record what is being compared in each, and then seek to explain the metaphors' meanings in their own words.
