Fling the Teacher! Simile & Metaphor Game {extra practice}


Here is a fun game to teach your child the difference between a simile and metaphor. I used it for my 5th grader for extra practice yesterday and she played three times. 🙂

The student can create their own teacher with features.  (I just snipped a preview above)

Then, they have to answer all 15 questions correctly to build a catapult that will fling the teacher at the end. 😉  Fling the Teacher was a fun way to practice skills. (Update: the site has been closed. The game is no longer available)  They will want to keep going until they answer all questions correctly!

Recommended for 4th and 5th grade.

  1. I love this game, specially when teaching metaphors and similes and the kids love it too. However, recently I have been trying to open it or even find it and it has been difficult if not impossible. What has changed? Every time I try to open any of the links, it takes me to something completely unrelated or it will not open at all.
