Figurative Language

20130108094121XaNuQ.jpg

A simile is a comparison between two objects using the words like or as.  


Examples:  Her hair was like woven silk after she got out of the shower.   He was as cool as a cucumber sitting in front of the air conditioner on the hot summer day.

Open your figurative language journal:
  •  Date it, and title the page SIMILE.

Metaphors

If you can create a simile, you can easily make it into a metaphor by removing the like or as.

A metaphor is a comparison between two objects not using like or as.  


Example: The bully was a tank plowing through the crowd.  The popcorn was a fireworks display as it popped in the microwave.



Open your figurative language journal:
  •  Date it, and title the page METAPHOR.  
  • Write down the definition and three examples you make up or find on your own.  
  • Choose one of them to illustrate.
