Get a super bargain with this Common Core aligned bundle of activities to help your students learn to differentiate between similes and metaphors. In this download you will find 40 differentiated task cards, 2 sets of 20 each. The first one is lower level, asking the students to determine if the sentence contains a simile or metaphor. The second set has the same content, but asks higher level students to identify which two things are being compared in addition to determining whether it is a simile or metaphor.
Two different recording sheets are provided, differentiated by numbers 1-20 and 1a-20a. Each set of task cards correlates with one of the two recording sheets.
Also included are 2 posters and 6 practice pages that you can display on a Smartboard or laminate for use with the task cards.
An answer key is provided!
