This figurative language resource contains a 13-slide PowerPoint and a matching PowerPoint companion handout. This PowerPoint is focused exclusively on similes!
The first slide provides a definition and an example. The remaining slides feature sentences, and students must determine whether or not the sentence contains a simile. ALL of the sentences contain either "like" or "as", but not all of the sentences are similes. Therefore, students must analyze each sentence closely to determine if unlike items are being compared in the sentence.
This can be used as an activity to introduce your students to similes, or as a quick review activity to help older students activate their prior knowledge.
It also contains a 1-page companion handout. Students can write their answers on the handout as you advance through the PowerPoint.
