Tried It Tuesday: Planet Simile

I'm linking up with the wonderful Holly for her "Tried It Tuesday"


At the end of the year we were looking for fun activities to review concepts with students. In step a wonderful free activity from the Peanut Gallery: Out of this World Similes!

The activity pack is actually 22 pages full of activities to reinforce similes. We just used one activity from the packet--describing aliens using similes. We gave the students a little more free reign where they could create unique aliens with various descriptions. Their creations turned out great. This was a fun activity to review and brightened up the hallway.


  1. What a fun activity! They turned out great! I need to remember this for next year! I have a summer reading list linky party going on at my blog that I would love for you to join :)

  2. I love the aliens your students created. Thanks for the heads-up about the free activity package - it looks great (printing right now!).

  3. This looks like such a cute project. Thanks for sharing the link. My kids love anything that lets them draw. I am going to download it now.
