This challenge activity focuses on the use of similes to make writing more creative and interesting. Students are given a passage and asked to add in five similes that will make the story more interesting to the reader. Students are very excited to do this activity in partners or groups and it encourages creative discussion in the process. The students can be asked to present their revised story either orally or on a butcher paper. The question is--who has the BEST story? Grades 4-8.
