Explore the use of similes with pupils using the activities in this resource pack allowing them to investigate the use of similes to compare. A range of commonly used similes are introduced in this resource pack.

Similes are often used in poetry and narratives for effect to add description and create a vivid image for the reader by comparing something to something else.
Pupils can use the cards to match images to similes that could be used to describe them, for example, a firefighter tackling a fire could be matched to the simile ‘as brave as a lion’.
