Simile & Metaphor

A simile compares two unlike things using the words "like" or "as". A metaphor compares two unlike things by saying the one is the other. Both similes and metaphors are figurative language, not literal. 1. Select a word from your reading or a class text that you do not know the meaning of. 2. Learn the meaning using an on-line and/or paper resource. 3. Write a simile using the word. 4. Write a metaphor using the word. 5. Draw a picture that shows the literal meaning. 6. Go to a peers Simile & Metaphor post, and in the comments tell how the literal drawing is different from what is meant by the figurative language.
