What is the effect of the figurative language in the following quote from 12-year old Severn Suzuki in a speech to The Environmental Children's Organization? "I'm only a child yet I know we are all part of a family, five billion strong, in fact, 30 million species strong and we all share the same air, water and soil." It describes the things that humans do to harm the Earth. It shows how people, animals, and the earth are all connected. It shows exactly how many different species are living on Earth. It creates an image of a family with a child who loves nature.

    Read the following sentence: A camper's fire burned the forest. Which of the following revised sentences uses figurative language to paint a more vivid picture? A careless camper's fire destroyed the forest. The group of campers left their fire unattended. Like a starving beast, the fire consumed the forest. The camper's fire was like the dangerous fire of 2013.

    What is the effect of the personification in the following lines written by John Muir? "As long as I live, I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I'll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can." It communicates appreciation and love of nature. It shows how much the author knows about nature. It inspires fear of the power of the natural world. It shows how determined the author is to protect nature.
