Read the sentences in the boxes on the left.  In the middle box, write down the object that is being personified.  In the last box, explain what the sentences means.  The first one is done for you.

Through the last activity you should have noticed that in each line:

  • There was an object being personified and…
  • There was a meaning.

It is not enough to say “The wall laughed”.

Ask yourself: When someone else reads this, will they understand

what it means?
