Description

Keep students on-task during December exploring characters and developing skills writing similes and metaphors with this activity that combines the two elements of literature. One two-page handout has students think of similes and metaphors for characters from books and short stories that they have read using world holiday foods. After that they choose one simile or metaphor they created and expand it into an extended metaphor poem. The second two-page handout follows the same format, but uses Christmas foods for the similes and metaphors. This yummy activity is sure to get their gray matter churning while visions of candy canes, oranges and sweet treats dance in their heads.

As always, this activity- PDF version- may be downloaded and printed for classroom use. Also, an Easel Activity is ready to be used for Google Classroom. Teachers may choose to add an interactive layer of their own for digital use by clicking on the red "Use as Buyer" rectangle on the product's page.
