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.
