This is a set of cards with 32 sentences containing figurative language including similes and metaphors. There are many ways these phrase cards could be used.
1. Use with blank game boards. (I have free game boards available in my TpT store.) At the beginning of each turn, the student must draw a card and identify the type of figurative language correctly. If the student is correct, he/she gets to roll the dice/spinner and move his/her pawn.

2. Use as a competitive game with partners or small groups. Each student who draws a card and identifies the type of figurative language correctly keeps the card. The winner is the student who collects the most cards. You can throw in a few "Gotcha" cards if you like. When a Gotcha card is drawn, the student loses all his collected cards.
3. Use as a literacy center for students to use independently with a sorting mat. Use the answer key to self check.
4. Place the cards at individual desks to play "Scoot".
4. I’ve included a student worksheet to use as a center or independent activity. Students will use the cards to identify what two things are being compared.
