For example, perhaps instead of an introduction, you may choose to use it as a review. If you are interested in a different type of exercise, look at the other worksheets on similes. You can use the worksheets as they are or just use them as inspiration for your own.

A simile is a figure of speech. When introducing similes to your students, approach the topic as you would a new type of sentence structure. Focus on creating similes using one structure as a time. Sentences like “He is as brave as a lion.” use a common simile structure but you can also use “like” and “than” to create similes. By introducing one structure at a time, you can ensure that students understand the material before moving on. Besides having students create similes using common structures, test comprehension by asking them to explain the meaning behind their sentences. This is good practice because it gives them the opportunity to paraphrase which requires using synonyms and drawing on a larger pool of vocabulary.
