Matching Similes Games

A simile is a phrase that makes a description clearer or more vivid by saying that one thing is similar to another thing. Most similes use the pattern "as...as" or the word "like".

Similes with "as...as"

The most common type of simile uses "as...as", for example: "He'sas strong as an ox." This means that he is a very strong man (using the word "ox" helps you imagine just how strong he is). The games in the table below will help you to learn or revise this type of simile.
