Super Similes And Metaphors Worksheet (30 in total) With Answers

This is a PDF version of thirty question worksheet that focuses on similes and metaphors. I have carefully crafted together some interesting examples for the students to identify. The statements cover two A4 pages or back to back of one. There is also two pages of answers. Students are required to identify each statement as either a simile or a metaphor. Then they must circle the two things that are being compared. This is a an excellent way to check their understanding of a simile and metaphor and how they differ. There are some images to help less able students visualize some of the statements. I hope that you and your child/students enjoy the task.
