Simile puzzles

These Salt and Pepper Similes are a great way for students to practice this grammar body. Similes are very important and help students make comparisons in a fun way. We have included 28 of the most common similes. These could be used in various ways such as in stations / partner match up / early finishers or as a running dictation.


All you have to do is print, laminate, cut and let the matching begin.
