Advanced Simile and Metaphor Worksheets

Related ELA Standard: L.5.5.A

Core Standard

As writers we often attempt to use real world examples to give our readers a more vivid understanding of what we are trying to portray to them. Writers often use similes which where you compare two things that share a common feature. When we use similes the words "as" and "like" are used to complete the comparison. When we make a direct comparison, but leave the words "as" and "like" out of it this is called a metaphor. These worksheets will have students work with more complex comparisons. This will help grow their writing technique and use of figurative language.
