Metaphor magic

One expectation that teachers have, mostly ELA teachers, is that students understand figurative language. We are going to make a contest to see if you can show what you know. We are asking students to illustrate some metaphors. Below is a list of metaphors and we are asking students to illustrate one or two of them. You cannot google photos! You need to compose the photo yourself. Use your friends, your teachers, administrators....who ever you can talk into helping you. You are to use only the metaphors listed below.

a reward for the winner of each metaphor

We are giving everyone a little time to do this. All entries must be to me by Tuesday, October 20. A panel of judges will look at them and the best example of each metaphor will receive a gift from the library. Send the finished pic collage to
