PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Analogies provide opportunities to learn important critical thinking skills. That’s why it is important to not only teach students about what an analogy is, but how to solve an analogy. This fun and engaging 3-day All About Analogies mini-unit is designed to help students build on their knowledge about analogies, discover new connections, and make broader comparison between things.

• This analogies mini-unit provides numerous opportunities to develop the skill of solving analogies.
• Each lesson starts with a fun and engaging activity – Analogy Match (hands-on), Sketch an Analogy (art integration), and Analogy Mix-Up (with puzzle pieces).
• Then, students learn about and practice solving analogies through whole group instruction, small group work, partnerships, and independent practice.

In this mini-unit, students will learn about what an analogy is, how to read an analogy, steps for solving an analogy, types of analogies (synonym, antonym, part to whole, descriptive, object to function, cause and effect), and essentials for making analogy comparisons. Students will complete guided notes, practice exercises, graphic organizers and analogy questions. This is a fun unit for students and teachers!
