Figurative Language Poem
Students will create a poem using figurative language. They will be given a random, broad topic and be asked to include various types of figurative language. The assignment is listed twice on the first page, so that teachers can make copies and cut in half before distributing. There is also a list of topics that can be cut out so that students can select a topic from a "grab bag." Assignment can be completed in one class period.
