Figurative Language - GREAT video!! I prepared a worksheet for my students. They copied down parts in the lyrics that were similes or metaphors, identified each according to what it was and then wrote what the artist was comparing...the true meaning behind the words. My students sat on the edges of their seats waiting for each song! It was a very engaging way to teach these literary devices!

Figurative Language - This video is probably my favorite. The person who put it together is a teacher, and his sense of humor is obvious with the use of calmer music, etc. My students laughed so hard throughout the entire thing...and I teach 9th/10th grade, so that's saying a lot!
