To generate vocabulary

In this lesson, we will look at two types of figurative language in detail: simile and personification. We will then have a go at writing our own sentences with a type of figurative language. Next, we will generate vocabulary (adjectives, verbs and adverbs) for the opening scene of Macbeth using the Animated Macbeth clip as a stimulus. Lastly, we will write two sentences using the vocabulary generated.
