Level 2.5 - Explanation

I can use the definitions of each type of figurative language to identify and explain the meaning of an example of figurative language.

Review

Use the Figurative Language PowerPoint and your notes to review the definitions and examples of the seven different types of figurative language.

Apply

Watch the Figurative Language Explanation video to understand how to use the definition for figurative language to explain the meaning of an example of figurative language.

Practice

See the teacher for a Figurative Language Explanation practice worksheet. Use what you learned from the PowerPoint to explain the meaning of the figurative language examples on the worksheet. See the teacher for the answer key.


If you can correctly identify the different examples and explain the meaning of the figurative language, you can take the assessment. If you can not identify or explain, you will need to complete more practices.
