This Figurative Language Game Show PowerPoint Game is a FUN activity for you to use to review and for students to practice with! This game will make figurative language something students are EXCITED to do! My class CHEERS when they see this game in the plans. PERFECT for review!✩Put students in up to 6 groups to play this Jeopardy style game! Review days can be dull and kids just don't listen.

I play this game a little differently. I like to have all students ENGAGED and REVIEWING every question. So, I do this by having them answer every question. One team chooses the category and amount. EVERYONE answers the questions with their groups and records their answer on their whiteboards. The team whose turn it is show me their answer and if correct, I award them the points. If incorrect, any team that has the correct answer can go for the steal and get the points for that question. Then the next team gets to choose the category and points.
✔ 25 Question Slides: various questions reviewing the given topic
✔ 25 Answer Slides: answers to the 25 question slides that link from each question to the answer.
✔ Game Board Slide: all question categories and amounts (click to go to a question and amounts will disappear as they are used)
✔ Scoreboard Slide: track points for each team with a WORKING SCOREBOARD!
✔ Buttons on EVERY SLIDE that will take you back to the game board or scoreboard.
✔ Reset Page buttons on the scoreboard and game board.
The categories and questions included are as follows:
- TYPES: questions consist of definitions and students must identify type of figurative language.
- ANALYZE: questions consist of a piece of figurative language and students must analyze what it means.
- EXAMPLES: questions consist of examples of figurative language and students must name which type they are.
- FIND IT: questions of a type of figurative language and 3 choices. Students must identify the choice that matches the type of figurative language in the question.
- MIXED BAG: questions include a variety of questions types from the categories above.
