I created these Metaphor & Simile Game cards as a review for one of my classes. They had recently learned about similes and metaphors, but hadn't had much practice identifying them in a sentence.
To play SCOOT:
1) Tape up cards around room. I recommend putting them in number order for ease of use by students.
2) Have students get a piece of looseleaf paper and number to 30 (or however many you are using).
3) Each student goes to any number card (one student per card is best).
4) Students will indicate on their papers if the given sentence is showing a simile or a metaphor. My students used M and S as a code.
5) When you say "SCOOT!" students will move to the next number card. If a student is at #5, he goes to #6. If a student is at #30 to start, she will move to #1.
6) Make sure you are going quickly! Students will be able to answer in about 30 seconds.
7) Repeat until all students have been to all cards. Students should be back at their starting number card.
Use for a grade, as a review, as a game, as task cards, in small groups, whole class, individually, or for partner work. You can also use these in reading centers as an activity; just have students write their responses on a piece of paper again, but no scooting.
I do recommend laminating these cards, as they will then last longer, be more durable, and will stand up to student handling and tape.
