Here’s a worksheet I used with one of my students yesterday, together with these posters and this Youtube video of my hilarious attempt to explain the difference between similes and metaphors to my student.

What Technique: simile, metaphor, personification?

_________________  the wind howled
_________________  my love is a rose
_________________  sunlight played on the water
_________________  his hands were ice
_________________  it was as hot as the sun
_________________  my love is like a rose
_________________  the branches grabbed at me
_________________  softly, slowly, silently
_________________  his face was ash
_________________  her dress looked like an old cabbage leaf
_________________  the roses in her cheeks were faded
_________________  the skeleton trees
_________________  brilliant but cruel as fire
_________________  the moon hid in cloud

_________________  floor like polished glass
