Lesson Sequence:

Begin the lesson by defining a simile. A simile is a comparison using like or as. Pass out simile web worksheets and turn overhead projector on. Go over the worksheet and do examples first as a class, then as a cluster, then individually, and finally there is a spot to make one up all together. Then pass out windsock activity to each group of students. Tell them to follow the directions on the worksheet, to read the list of sentences and pick out the five similes that are in it. They should raise their hands when they think they have them picked out for writing on the windsock and if they have done it correctly tell them to get their strips of construction paper. They are to write what a simile is on the large piece of construction paper and then the five examples on the skinny strips and staple or glue them to it so they hang. Then they will string a piece of yarn through the big piece and hang above their desks.
