This worksheet on similes is entitled "As Quiet As a Mouse...As Loud As Thunder." At the top is a picture of a mouse and a thunder cloud followed by an explanation of what a simile is. They are then compared and contrasted with metaphors. Next come 6 sentences in which the students must locate and underline (recognition) the 2 things being compared in each. Then there are 6 prompts for students to finish describing by writing similes of their own (application). The worksheet provides effective practice working with similes, which indeed serves as a helpful test prep for when they are asked figurative language questions on standardized tests.
