Hyperbole is a fun form of figurative language to study. Tall tales are perfect for studying hyperbole, and one of my favorite tall tale legends is Paul Bunyan. There are many stories about Paul Bunyan, and most lend themselves well to hyperbole. This free Paul Bunyan lesson, includes a Paul Bunyan story and hyperbole lesson.
At the end of this lesson, students create their own pop up books, which my students love. The pop up books are a fun ending to this lesson.
