This lesson is suitable for students who have some reading and writing ability, and are beginning to use more advanced English. By the end of the lesson, students will be able to use a variety of interesting adjectives to describe themselves. This is a good get-to-know-you activity, as it also includes time for students to talk about their personal experiences. Requires no prep time!
A good way to introduce and model similes is by using this delightful book by Audrey and Don Wood – Quick as a Cricket.
