    • Project:

    Students will work in pairs to find an interesting picture in a magazine.

    They will cut it out and paste it onto a large piece of paper folded and marked in quarters.

    Partners will work to write sentences containing simile, metaphor, personification, and their choice of hyperbole or idiom, using the illustration as their inspiration.

    This work will be posted in the hallway.
