Marvelous Mythological March Madness
I have activities like this for:
The only problem I was having was that the activities were so time-consuming and with spring in full gear, we are beginning to loose a lot of class time to things like concerts, international day and student-led conferences. I was trying to figure out the best way to teach all of these devices without having to take up a whole lot of class time.
Enter the infographic! My plan is to introduce this infographic to my students and send them on a hunt for figurative language. I will have a variety of myths around the classroom to read, which will cover all of the different types of figurative language.
- Find an example of each type of figurative language.
- Take a picture of it on your iPad and post it to our class Padlet on figurative language.
Our connection to writing will be to use this infographic as a resource and a checklist, trying to include at least 5 different types of figurative language in their own writing. The beauty of this is that students will gain exposure to each of the different types of figurative language, without having to loose too much class time with direct instruction.
Wish me luck!
