Our Literal and Nonliteral Language lesson plan introduces students to the differences between literal and nonliteral language and how each is used. During this lesson, students are asked to work in pairs to explore the meaning, use and an image representing their assigned idiom, engaging their creativity as they are asked to draw out the idiom as well. Students are also challenged to create a new idiom, reinforcing the concept of literal and nonliteral language and testing their understanding of these concepts.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define literal and nonliteral language, identify the differences, and give examples and tell the meaning of nonliteral (figurative) language.

    Literal and Non-literal Language Lesson Plan

    The plan was well laid out. The videos links worked well. Some of the links unfortunately did not work for the worksheets.
