METAPHORS & SIMILES

Metaphors are comparisons that show how two things that are not alike in most ways are similar in one important way.


A simile is a type of metaphor that uses "like" or "as" to compare

EXAMPLE: He is as fast a a cheetah.

Some metaphors are not similes because they don't use "like" or "as"

EXAMPLE: He is a cheetah.

Now click on the link to play a metaphor and simile
