Help students on their journey to becoming figurative language masters. Introduce them to the figurative language that they are familiar with and give it a name--Similes.
The brief slides are a fun way to get the class involved. Have students discuss the meaning, turn and talk with a partner about a time that they "ate like a pig", or have a show of hands for whose parent has called them "as slow as a turtle".
