This figurative language activity teaches metaphors with pictures, phrases, and sentences. Learning figurative language is fun with these digital task cards that are self checking, no prep, and paperless! When I teach figurative language to my students, I teach in the order of this resource I created. I have had enormous success teaching my students in this order and they learn quickly!
