Common Core Content Activity: MS Figurative Language
MS Figurative Language: This unit replaces Figurative Language Informational and Literature. In these activities, we learn about understanding and using Figurative Language. The unit reflects both literatures as well as informational text. The students are introduced to literal and figurative meanings of words and phrases, formal and informal tones, metaphors, similes, and idioms, using context clues to understand how it enhances the sentence. Students read emails and text messages written by two middle school students named Sophia and Alex as well as informational blurbs. Sophia and Alex assist the students throughout the activity to determine what the written text means. Throughout the unit, the students practice all activities on real-life examples.
*Special Bonus: This activity comes with supplies to make student work folders!
Each activity is completed on two different levels for differentiated instruction.
