This is a one day lesson to teach Similes. This lesson includes a Prezi presentation with embedded videos, a PowerPoint presentation with videos and a Simile Handout/Exit Slip assignment. The Exit Slip can be used as a handout or students can simply write down the questions and answers throughout the presentation.
The use of Exit Slips requires students to actively participate in the class lesson. The questions and practice activities are a fast paced and allow the teacher to quickly assess for student understanding.
