What our Biblical Similes lesson plan includes
Lesson Objectives and Overview: Biblical Similes teaches students how define, identify, and use similes using examples from the Bible. During the lesson, students will be able to create and write their own similes. By the end, they will understand what a simile is and be able to use one correctly.
This lesson contains three content pages. It starts off by explaining what a simile is and why people use them. Students will then discover how to identify a simile, by looking for the words like or as. The lesson provides several examples from the Bible and explains a few of their meanings.
CREATE A SIMILE ACTIVITY
For the activity worksheet, students will draw pictures that match similes. The first worksheet page displays two boxes with biblical similes that students will draw pictures for. The second page contains two boxes where students will write their own similes. The first box can be any comparison they like. The second one must be from a Bible verse. Students can work with a partner for this activity if you prefer.
ANALYZE THE SIMILES PRACTICE WORKSHEET
The practice page divides into a few sections. The first section requires students to match five similes to the meaning they represent. Then students must complete five sentences with the appropriate simile. Next, they must match five similes to the correct opposite comparison. There are two sentences containing similes that students must explain at the bottom of the page.
The second practice worksheet page requires students to read several passages and underline any similes they find.
BIBLICAL SIMILES HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT
The are also two sections on the homework worksheet. For the first part, students must read 10 sentences. They will explain what each simile in the sentence means.
