2  Discovering Similes  You can paint strong word pictures by comparing two things that share some qualities. A simile is a comparison of two things that have some quality in common. A simile contains a word such as like, as, resembles, or than. A metaphor is a comparison of two things that does not use like, as, resembles, or than. Instead, it states that one thing actually is something else.  Examples:  When my brother makes dinner, the kitchen looks like a battleground.  The sink, filled with dirty dishes, is as crowded and messy as a junkyard.  The countertops are a nightmare of stains, spills, and potato peelings.  Comparison Characteristics Things Compared from Examples  Simile With like, as, kitchen / battleground; sink / junkyard  Metaphor Without like, as countertops / nightmare

3  Directions: Read the passage. Identify three examples of similes. Underline the example and explain their meaning below.  Sometimes I think that I’m as blind as a bat. Yesterday my teacher asked us to find examples of similes. I’m usually smart as a whip but I couldn’t find anything. My mind was like a blank page. My friend Brian is a computer of information. He suggested that I look in the newspaper. On the front page was the headline “Flag Flies High as a Kite.” There are no similes there. Next I tried looking in my favorite book. It is a book about baseball. The main character in the book speeds around the bases like a racecar. But there are no similes there either. Finally, Brian says “you’re as slow as a snail.” And I say, “Aha! There is a simile!”
