Figurative Language Task for Mister and Me

Mister and Me is a one of my favorite historical fiction stories to read with a class. Set in 1940s Louisiana, it allows you to talk about the racism that was occuring while also covering a good story about growing up and accepting change. Additionally, this book has a lot of great idioms and figurative language, which give me a chance to talk with students about this non-literal language. I created this Language Task to use this book when covering this important skill. It works well for my English Language Learners and native speakers alike.
