Storyboard Text

  • So a simile is when you compare two things using the words like or as. For instance,  Melody here is going fast as a cheetah. Oh, wait! Melody! Hi!
  • Hi Lea and Jenna! What are you doing?
  • I was just explaining to Jenna what a simile is.
  • What's a metaphor?
  • What about metaphors? I love those!
  • It is! A metaphor simply doesn't use the words like or as like a simile does!
  • I think it is pretty similar to a simile....
  • There are a lot of different types of metaphors, such as a Conceptual Metaphor, an Absolute Metaphor, and an Extended Metaphor.  
  • Why would we use metaphors in our writing?
  • Both similes and metaphors create a comparison between two similar objects. Metaphors should be used to show how one particular event is almost exactly the same as another one. Similies develop a looser comparison. As well as to compare, both similes and metaphors attract the reader and it is easy to come up with new similes and metaphors.
