In this worksheet your student will write metaphors and similes about himself.
A metaphor is one kind of figurative language. It makes a direct comparison of two unlike things. You can tell the difference between a metaphor and a simile because a simile uses the words “like” or “as”, and a metaphor does not. Metaphors often usually use a form of the verb “to be”. The verb can be in the past tense (was, were), the present tense (am, is, are), or future tense (will be). The printable metaphor worksheets below help students to understand how this kind of figurative language can be used. Each worksheet is free to duplicate for home or classroom use.
