Simile and Metaphor

Simile and Metaphor

In this lesson, students will identify similes and metaphors in given sentences then use code blocks to create a DIY project where two Actors have a conversation and use at least one simile or metaphor. Coding activities include using the “ask” block to write simile or metaphor messages, using an “if-else” block to check if the answer is correct or incorrect, using “say” blocks, and adding the “animate” blocks to program the Actors to talk. Students are provided the necessary visual assets (backgrounds, costumes, Actors) and code blocks in the DIY module.
After completing the DIY module, students will be asked 5 quiz questions that test their knowledge on identifying if a given statement is a simile or metaphor. By the end of the lesson, students will have experimented with coding concepts (e.g., conditionals, input/output, messaging, animation) while reinforcing differences between a simile and a metaphor.

Great app
Wow! This app is really great. For the first time my kids actually enjoy learning math and reading. The games on Kids Academy are educational and really fun.
Great app!
This app is wonderful for my 7 years old son! :) It focuses on basic reading, writing, and math skills. The reward system is great and consistent!
Such a great app!
This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
Great for kids
Our 7 years old daughter loves reading activities and every off-line game Kids Academy offers. This is a very good app, I highly recommend it!
So engaging
We love how we can focus on math with this app. It is engaging and we love how we are able to adjust and tailor the levels according to our son’s knowledge and skill levels!
