This document makes 42 cards with (mostly) common similes.
19 cards with similes involving animals (eg. as gentle as a lamb)
23 cards with inanimate similes (eg. as right as rain)
You can use these cards either as flash cards or matching cards. Students find these cards more motivating than a worksheet.
Print these cards on label paper (Avery 3652) and then stick them on a bigger piece of thick coloured paper. Put these cards in card sleeves (used for magic cards and such).
As flash cards:
Put both parts on either side of the card.
Have your students quiz themselves or each other.
As matching cards:
Put both parts on separate pieces of paper.
Changing the level:
Depending on the level of your student(s), you can decide how many cards they have to match at the same time when they're using matching cards.
