Explaining Similes and Metaphors Worksheets

Related ELA Standard: L.4.5.A

Core Standard

Both similes and metaphors compare two very different things in interesting ways. In many cases the reader is left to use their imagination to visualize this relationship. Great writes cannot only make the comparison vivid, but make it factual and entertaining. We often use these forms of figurative language without even realizing it. These literary devices help authors ensure that they capture the imagination of their audience. They are forms of rhetorical figures of speech that attempt to establish a characterized relationship between different objects. The way in which they are presented to the readers helps them mold that comparison in their mind and paint visions in their head. These worksheets will also have students to make sense of these comparisons and ask you what the writer intended.
