Simile and Metephor


Similes and Metaphors
A simile is where two things are directly compared because they share a common feature. The word AS or LIKE is used to compare the two words. Eg. As cold AS a dog's nose
A metaphor also compares two things, but it does so more directly WITHOUT using as or like. Eg. The shop was a little gold-mine.
Task One
At the end of the sentence, write in brackets whether the sentence is an example of a metaphor or simile.
Eg. The clouds were fluffy like cotton wool. (SIMILE)

  1. As slippery as an eel. (SIMILE)
  2. Arnie was a man-mountain.(Metaphors)
  3. He was a lion in battle.(Metaphors)
  4. She is as pretty as a picture.(SIMILE)
  5. The striker was a goal machine.(Metaphors)
  6. The torch lit up the room as if the sun had risen early.(SIMILE)
  7. The moon was a misty shadow.(Metaphors)
  8. My friend has a face like a bag of spanners.(SIMILE)

Task Two
Now you are going to make up similes of your own by copying and finishing these sentences.
For example:
As good as gold

  1. As heavy as a rock.
  2. As cold as a  winter.
  3. As hard as a rock.
  4. She had skin like a Tiger.
  5. As cool as a man.
  6. As quick as a fox.
  7. He was slow like a snail
  8. Slippery like a eel
