If you or your students like songs and lyrics, try my Figurative Language Using Song Lyrics packet!


April is Poetry Month: Two-Voice Poetry and Figurative Language in Song Lyrics.



This packet includes:
~A teacher direction page
~A student direction page
~A lyric sorting page
~5 pages of lyrics
~A color-coded answer key

This is an activity in which students are looking for similes, metaphors, hyperbole, and personification in various song lyrics.  They sort the lyrics according to what type of figurative language they represent and then draw a representation of their favorite lyric.
