This lesson is about using similes. A simile is a way of describing something by comparing it to something else using “like” or “as.” Using similes can make your writing more interesting by helping to create a picture in the reader's mind. Rather than writing, “The athlete runs fast,” how about adding a simile to describe how the athlete ran by comparing it to something else? For example, “The athlete sprinted as fast as a cheetah.” Or rather than writing, “Her dress fits well,” how about comparing it to something else that fits well such as, “Her dress fits like a glove?” Here are some other examples of similes, “Without her glasses, she is as blind as a bat,” “My brother chatters like a monkey.” Can you identify the similes in the following sentences, “My wicked stepmother was as cold as ice?” The simile is, “As cold as ice.” How about this one, “The new boy was as good as gold?” The simile here is, “As good as gold.”
