Homework Figurative Language For 5th Grade

Figurative Language Worksheets

We use figurative language all the time and don't even realize it. We describe things often by making a comparison to something else. That is exactly what figurative language is. It helps make things make sense quicker. Just at the dinner table last night my family used this form of language to describe my son's habit of eating quickly. For example, here are some things that were said: "You really wolfed that done!" "You eat like a horse!"
