Simile and Metaphor Worksheet 2

Here's another 20 simile and metaphor examples to help students master this figurative language skill. Again, students read each example, circle whether it is a simile or metaphor, and then explain which two things are being compared. Also, I recommend that you have your high achieving students translate each example into literal language as well, particularly if you are assigning this as classwork. I find that some students work through these problems very quickly and need an additional cognitive task to keep them challenged.
