Figurative Language Journal in Keynote

My 8th grade ELA class has been working with figurative language. We started a journal in Keynote of different types of figurative language. We began the journal with personification. Students took pictures of items around the room. The image was uploaded into Keynote, and the students used different tools to mark up the image. They added faces to the image and word bubbles to create the personification. Next, they started a slide for onomatopoeia. They used the animation tool to make images and words "zoom" in or "splat" or "bounce".

The students were engaged in the lesson and particularly enjoyed the animation. This is a fun, creative way to create dictionaries or journals. Once the students learn how to use the tools, they will get faster working with Keynote. Now we can add to our journals each day as a bellringer.

Super bell ringer idea! I bet their Keynotes are very creative using lots of animation and transition choices. Thanks for sharing!
