Complete the following task:


It makes a comparison of two unlike things using the words “like” or “as”.

For example:

  • As big as an elephant
  • As dark as the night
  • As cold as ice
  • Like two peas in a pod
  • Like a moth to the flame
  • Like a dream



It makes a direct comparison of two unlike things. You can tell the difference between a metaphor and a simile because a simile uses the words “like” or “as”, and a metaphor does not. Metaphors often usually use a form of the verb “to be”. The verb can be in the past tense (was, were), the present tense (am, is, are), or future tense (will be).

Is a comparison that does not include the words like or as.

For Example:

– The snow is a white blanket.

– My teacher is a dragon.

– The computers at school are old dinosaurs.

– Those two best friends are two peas in a pod.


Create your own post card explaining and illustrating a simile and metaphor.
