3 - Whiteboard Challenges

Whiteboard Challenges

Challenge 1

Turn the first sentence into a simile. Remember – a simile is a figure of speech that directly compares two different things.

Challenge 2

Rewrite the second sentence with examples of personification. Think about how you could give the sun’s rays human traits. Think about how you could give the whooper swan human traits as she took to the sky. (You could build on the word ‘angelic.’)

Challenge 3

Write your own scintillating sentence about the swan featured in the clip or your own experience of seeing this magnificent bird. Try to include some of the words from the Word Wall and at least one example of figurative language.
