Objective

Students analyze two groups of sentences to determine the patterns that we've set up: simile vs metaphor.

Steps

  1. Students receive two groups of example sentences. They ponder why they were placed into those two categories.
  2. We add three ungrouped examples. Now students decide which groups those examples belong in.
  3. We reveal the correct groupings then discuss the differences between the two groups. Group A features the similes and Group B uses metaphors. We close with a practice worksheet.
