Tested and Approved! My fifth graders needed ample opportunities to practice IDENTIFYING and DETERMINING the meaning of both SIMILES and METAPHORS within text, not just isolated sentences or phrases. With 28 poems, this unit does JUST THAT! You can first teach the students to read, identify, determine the meaning, & write similes before doing the same with metaphors. Each literary device is taught and practiced separately, however combined practice is also provided as well as an end of the unit QUIZ!
This unit includes:
*2 Anchor Pages (Simile and Metaphor)
*4 Simile Practice Pages
*4 Metaphor Practice Pages
*2 Mixed Practice Pages
Full Page KEYS for EVERY Activity.
This unit was created to support the common core standard
Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative language such as metaphors and similes.
