Overview:

In this lesson, the students will learn about some different figures of speech and expressions in the English language. A figure of speech is when we use words creatively in a way that is a little different from what the words mean normally. Expressions like metaphors and similes are used to add rhetorical force to the spoken or written language. This resource offers videos, games, and worksheets to help further understand the concept taught in this lesson.
