Metaphors

Here is a two day lesson on metaphors based on colors.
Metaphors are comparisons of two nouns. Similes compare two unlike things using "like" or "as." The difference is very minimal when students are in the primary grades.

Day One:
  •      read through March Metaphors: http://www.bookemon.com/book-profile/march-metaphor/5732
  •      have students pick a color out of a paper bag and meet with everyone with that color to come up w/ 5  metaphors for that color (see group color sheet below)
  •     students gather back on carpet to share with class

Day Two:
  • display metaphors students developed day before
  • review what a metaphor is
  • tell students that today they will write a metaphor for each color
  • distribute color sheets to students and have students complete (see color metaphor below)
