Figurative Language

A PowerPoint activity about alliteration and personification

Grade Level: 3-5

Duration: Two class periods

Objectives: Students will

  • Create a PowerPoint show illustrating two types of figurative language. As an alternative, allow students to use an interactive online tool to create a similar slideshow presentation, using a site such as Zoho Show (reviewed here). This site is easier to use than PowerPoint and FREE! Another advantage to Zoho Show versus PowerPoint is that students can collaborate and work together, even on different computers with a simple URL address.
  • Demonstrate understanding of personification by creating and interpreting simple examples.
  • Demonstrate understanding of alliteration by creating and interpreting simple examples.

Standards Connection:

  • COMMON CORE ELA L.5.5. Demonstrate understanding of figurative language, word relationships, and nuances in word meanings.
