Fun with Figures of Speech!

Students got creative with figures of speech creating PowerPoint One-Pagers identifying similes and idioms in the novel Seedfolks by Paul Fleischman.  On the "Similes One Pager" students recorded and cited 3 similes from the novel and wrote 3 of their own similes about the novel and its characters, setting, etc.  On the "Idioms Two-Pager" students created one slide on idioms with meanings that Curtis says in his chapter of Seedfolks.  On the second slide, students recorded idioms with meanings that they use in their everyday lives.  

Here are some fabulous examples of the "Similes One Pagers":
