You will need to select 4 out of the 7 choices for Figurative Language.  (simile, metaphor, hyperbole, personification, onomatopoeia, alliteration, idiom)

  • Use the examples below for inspiration
  • Will need to use Photo Story, Windows Movie Maker, or iMovie (or something equivalent) to complete the assignment.
  • Must show figurative language you’ve chosen
  • Then show us the lyrics that pertain to the figurative language (not the entire song-just the lines around)
  • We will also need to hear the song. (YouTube video or simply play the song in the background) (Again, not the entire thing–just the parts that apply.)
  • You don’t have to include the explanation, but be ready to share it with your classmates.

    Mrs. Yates, I don’t’ know how I am going to complete this project. My netbook is broken, my replacement netbook will not let me log in, and my Desktop Computer at home was just wiped and has nothing on it (does not have windows movie maker). I don’t have anything else that I could make it on either. What should I do?
