Watch the below clip:
Complete the following task:
It makes a comparison of two unlike things using the words “like” or “as”.
- 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.
– 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.
