A short fairy tale about a little girl who sells packs of matches on the streets.
This will be our final project for the year! We have been working extensively with symbols and hidden meanings and this project will be a culmination of that work. You will be creating a GoogleSlides or PowerPoint presentation on symbols and their meanings. To accomplish this you will need to take pictures of 5 different objects that hold special significance. These pictures should be taken yourself and not things that you downloaded off the internet.
Once you have found your 5 objects, it will be your task to write one paragraph per symbol. Each paragraph should contain 5 different symbolic meanings that each object could represent. To get a better idea of what is expected of you with this project, please view the presentation provided:

Your virtual day assignment is to create 5 test questions about the Figurative Language topics we have covered over the past week or so. You must also include the answers to your questions. The 5 best test questions will be added to the test we will be having at the end of the unit and if your question is selected you will get extra-credit points on the test. Each question should be thought out and grammatically correct. You will be graded on the difficulty of your questions. At least two questions must have multi-steps to it. An example of this is:
"What is a metaphor? What are two words that cannot be found in a metaphor?"
You will create the 5 test questions using Google Slides and drop-box me the link when you are finished.
