BBQ Figurative Language {NEW} Activity

It is almost Memorial Day and I'm sure many of you have picnics, BBQs, and more to attend this weekend!  I purchased this adorable BBQ clip art a little while back and thought what better weekend to create an activity than this?!  I have many students that struggle with explaining and understanding figurative language.  I hope you find this activity exciting and useful!!  The best part is, the graphics go perfectly with the upcoming summer season.  Head over to my TpT store to grab this activity.  

BBQ Figurative Language

This activity targets similes, metaphors, and idioms. There are 112 cards included with this set!!

Included: 40 similes, 32 metaphors, 40 idioms, BBQ mat page, blank page to add your own similes, metaphors, or idioms, and answer keys.

How to Play: Print and laminate all pages. Cut apart all individual cards and place face down on table or playing area. Each student receives a BBQ mat page where he/she stores BBQ items. Students will correctly explain the simile, metaphor, or idiom in order to collect the item. The first student to get one of each BBQ item is the winner! The included answer keys give possible explanations for each simile, metaphor, and idiom.

I hope you and your students have fun using this activity all summer long!  Enjoy the rest of your Memorial Day weekend!!!
