Figurative Language Flip Book

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 2 pages | Years: 5 - 6

A flip book template for students to identify examples of figurative language.

Things are just more fun when they flip, right?! This flip book is a great way for students to review figurative language!

Figurative Language Literacy Group Activity

Use this flip book as an activity during literacy groups.

  • Print a front cover page and examples page for each student.
  • Have students cut along the dotted lines of the cover page and glue the cover to the examples page.
  • Provide students with example texts to read. Our What’s Buzzing Magazines are a great source!
  • Have students find each type of figurative language and write examples.

Since not all texts have every type of figurative language, you can create a challenge for your students! If they can’t identify the type of figurative language in the texts provided, have them write their own as a suggested addition.

Types of Figurative Language

The figurative language that students will need to find include:

  • a simile
  • a metaphor
  • onomatopoeia
  • alliteration
  • hyperbole
  • personification.
