How to use similie and metaphor in your writing

Similes and Metaphors really spice up your writing.  These are ways that you can compare one thing to another in a very graphic and imaginative way.  Yes there are some similes that are idioms now, "She is as quiet as a mouse."

After you have done this worksheet, write your own similes and metaphors here:
