I like to use analogies to help build vocabulary and make connections. Students can use these comparisons in their writing. There are 2 sets, the only difference is one set doesn’t have the last word. I like to use the first set with a post it note covering the answer and then peel it away after we have brainstormed possible answers. The second set, I like to use by letting students write what they think the answer is on the board below the paper showing there can be more than one answer on most of them. As long as the connection they made make sense, we accept their answer. Enjoy!
