  • A simile is a comparison between two things using the words "like" or "as."

    In order to create a simile first you must have two things.

    For example:
    1.  the sun;
    2.  an orange.

    How are they similar?  Well both have bright colors...  they are both round.

    Then you compare the two things using "like" or "as."

    My orange is as bright as the sun.

    The sun is like a round, round orange.


    How about two more things:

    1.  a jaguar
    2.  you

    How are they similar?  Both are fast.
