           Find at least five examples of personification.  Write down each sentence that demonstrates personification.  Highlight the words and phrases that show personification.

 

The next type of figurative language you need to research is onomatopoeia.

The last type of figurative language you will be learning about is hyperbole.

           Now, finish this sentence with a hyperbole: "My teacher is so..."

           Draw a picture to go with your hyperbole.

           Write the hyperbole in a different color than the rest of the sentence.

 

Now that you have done all the "leg work," you are ready to put together your presentation for the boss!
