"The goal of this assignment was to use the Internet to find rich literary examples of figurative language and poetic elements. Students were instructed to find examples and analyze the quality of the example for the type of figurative language they wanted to feature. Each student had to include simile, metaphor, alliteration, onomatopoeia, idiom, hyperbole, imagery, symbol and for fun, pun. I asked my 6th grade students to look for specific examples in the writings of Langston Hughes, John Steinbeck, and F. Scott Fitzgerald and other gifted and well known poets and writers. Students then took the examples they found and created a Powtoon or Prezi presentation and shared their project with their peers and me," describes Ms. Anderson.
