Analogies are a powerful tool to help students understand and remember academic vocabulary. They can also be very challenging for the students to create.
This set provides a sample analogy for each term in the Describing Motion Digital Journal. Use it as a presentation for class discussion to get students started thinking, then print activity cards for the students to discuss and match in small groups before completing their digital journals assignment.
Each word and analogy is presented both on a single slide for projection and within a table for easier printing.
