Figurative Language Activities for Google Slides


Find it Fast



This a fun, interactive way to help your students learn about seven different types of figurative language. Students will work directly in Google Slides or Microsoft OneDrive to complete these paperless activities.

What is included:

  • Teacher directions – includes the access links and instructions on how to use this in your library or classroom
  • Instructions for using this resource with Microsoft OneDrive
  • Google slides file

7 slides that can be used as anchor charts or an introduction/review of the concepts. They can also be printed off to use as posters.

  • Simile
  • Metaphor
  • Personification
  • Idiom
  • Hyperbole
  • Alliteration
  • Onomatopoeia

Two activity slides to review each type of figurative language plus two slides to use as an overall assessment/review. Some slides require students to type in their answers. I have inserted text boxes on these slides. The other slides have movable pieces. For example: students will match an idiom to it’s meaning or complete the metaphors.

The preview shows many of the slides but not all. Download the preview here.

Important Note: This is not an editable resource.
