Similes are a great way to get your writers thinking about descriptive details. They read a brief explanation which covers clichés and the general wording of a simile. Then, learners try a few on their own. First, they complete nine sentences comparing adjectives. Next, they complete three sentences with similes for verbs. Finally, they do the same comparing nouns. There is an example for each part of speech to guide students, but the fun part about this is how varied your answers will be. Encourage them to use their imagination!
