Metaphors Teaching Resources

Ages: 7-11

Our printable metaphors resources are available for download below. Here are some ideas suggesting how to use them in the classroom:

  • Put them up on display!
  • Print the examples of metaphors and ask the children to explain their meanings. Could they draw a picture to represent the metaphor?
  • Talk about the metaphors. Have the children heard any of them before? Where did they hear them?
  • Let children use the metaphors to make their own ‘Book of Metaphors’ to refer to during independent writing.
  • Ask children to find other examples of metaphors.
  • Challenge children to find metaphors in different types of text.

Can you suggest another way of teaching children about metaphors by commenting below?
