Description: This simile and metaphor deck was created for 3rd-6th grade. You can use these to help your students practice figurative language. These cards specifically will help them to determine the difference between similes and metaphors, which can be very tricky. This simile and metaphor deck includes: 44 task cards (8 similes and metaphor instructional pages and 36 simile and metaphor task cards with a variety of questions). • The first 8 instructional pages include the definitions of similes and metaphors and how to determine the difference. It also includes a list of many common similes and metaphors. • Task cards 9-20 are multiple-choice answers that have your students find similes and metaphors from a list of choices. • Task cards 21- 32 are multiple-choice answers, where your students will choose whether a statement is a metaphor, simile or neither. • Task cards 33- 44 are multiple-choice as well, but they have your students pick a choice that best describes the meaning of each simile.
