Simile or cliché?

Grades 4,5 | Writing, Reading

Light as a feather is a simile (a comparative phrase that uses like or as) - but because it's used so much, it's a bit of a cliché. In this language arts worksheet, your child will come up with original comparisons for adjectives, verbs, and nouns and write them as similes.

This worksheet originally published in English Made Easy Key Stage 2 for ages 10 to 11 by © Dorling Kindersley Limited.

Skills: similes and metaphors, figurative language, building vocabulary, synonyms
