A simile is a figure of speech in which two essentially unlike things are compared, often in a phrase linked together with “like” or “as”. While we can’t guarantee your students will be able to recite that definition from memory when they finish the activities in Barker Creek’s popular Similes Grammar Activity book, they will be able to be “quiet as mice” as they read with new-found confidence and “brave as lions” when they tackle their next writing assignments. This unit is complete with a review test, extension ideas, reproducible pictures to supplement the lessons, and a blank template for creating your activity sheets. One of nine titles in the top-selling Building FUNdamentals book series. 48 reproducible activity pages. Coordinating poster available. Search: Barker Creek Grammar Posters.
