I think this is a good resource for starting to teach on Figurative Language. It consists of four worksheets to use to introduce the topic. You will need to introduce other examples, only one strong example is provided for each type of figurative language for students to grasp this topic.

Excellent resources! I particularly like the fact that the reasons why the poetic devices are effective is explained.
