Peter Pan Similes, Metaphors, and Personification
Peter Pan Similes, Metaphors, and Personification Graphic Organizers
In the first part of this figurative language lesson, students create a foldable graphic organizer. On the organizer, students write the definitions for metaphor, simile, personification, and hyperbole. Students then write an example sentence for each type of figurative language. Finally, students illustrate their examples. Each corner of the organizer folds to the center to form a diamond shape that will fit into an interactive notebook.
Peter Pan Similes, Metaphors, and Personification Graphic Task Cards
Included in this pdf file are ideas for teaching figurative language. One activity contains 45 cards with sentences from Peter Pan with figurative language. Students can use the cards to sort by figurative language type and for discussions. One fun activity is to provide each student with a figurative language card and ask them to draw a literal picture of the sentence. For example, with “All the stars were watching them,” a student could draw stars with eyes watching Peter Pan, John, Michael, and Wendy.
