Product Description
This is a six-page product that gives students various ways to access (and then create) Extended Metaphors (and Similes).

It starts with a quick and easy, one-page worksheet to kickstart students in their creative writing. There are seventeen metaphor stems which students have to fill out (e.g., Freedom is _____________.) After completing the worksheet, students share with a partner, but also choose their favourite three as the basis for writing extended metaphors (e.g., Freedom is a summer's day....)

Next is a two-page handout and exercise where students read good a collection of extended metaphors. They must identify what two things are being compared and state whether it is a metaphor or simile. As a class we discuss. They then select their favourite and write a small paragraph looking at what makes it a good extended metaphor.

Finally, for my junior students, I have included a similar worksheet with the inclusion of some fill-in-the-blank notes. (And answer key is provided for this worksheet.)

Overall, I enjoy delivery these lessons. Once students get a bit of practice discussing what makes a good (extended) metaphor, it is wonderful to read how creative some of their comparisons can be. I hope you and your students have as much creative freedom with this activity as my students and I do.
