Activity Overview


Figurative language adds a descriptive element to text. Where the Mountain Meets the Moon has many examples of figurative language, including similes. In this activity, students can display their understanding of figurative language by identifying the examples from the text and creating a literal or figurative portrayal of the language. Additional types of figurative language include metaphors, personification, idioms, and hyperbole.

In the storyboard example below, there are three similes from Minli's encounter with the monkeys:


  • "The monkeys’ shrieks were starting to sound like hysterical laughter, getting louder and louder like a volcano about to erupt.”

  • “...with her eagerness she felt like the water she was boiling.”

  • “Through the rising steam, he could see the beady eyes of all the monkeys glittering through the branches like hundreds of diamonds as they watched as well”.
