Metaphors and Similes

Children are introduced to Tennyson the Turtle, a reptile who likes to use metaphors and similes, in this appealing worksheet! Students first learn how to identify metaphors and similes, then read a short passage containing each. After reading, children write three similes and three metaphors from the passage they have just read. Designed for fourth graders, this worksheet provides a great introduction to figurative language. It also supports the lesson plan Similes, Metaphors, and Idioms of Figurative Language.
