Our Similes and Metaphors lesson plan introduces students to similes and metaphors; a language device students use often without realizing it. Students are asked to work collaboratively choose classroom items and write both a simile and a metaphor for each, and then use their public speaking skills to present them to the class. Students are also asked to work individually to identify whether sentences contain a simile or metaphor.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define, identify and correctly use similes and metaphors.
