Worksheet Overview

Use of Language - Personification


There are so many ways we can use language to create amazing images.

One particular technique is called personification.


Personification is when something non-human is given human attributes, emotions or actions.


For example:


The trees danced in the wind.


Trees in the wind.




The car coughed to life.


Cartoon of a yellow car.


Trees can't actually 'dance' and cars can't 'cough', so the technique of personification has been used to give them human characteristics.


Shall we have a go at some questions now?
