How to teach Analogies
Using this Analogies Worksheet, students decide the relationships between two pairs of ideas to create analogies.
Solving analogies are difficult for students when they start looking for relationships. This worksheet provides a word bank for the first half of the worksheet and then lets students try working on their own.
Students will decide the relationship between the first pair of words to create a pair of words that match the same relationship. Once students have created a complete analogy, challenge them to explain how they chose how to fill in the blanks.

Introduce this worksheet by showing students two pictures like milk and cow. Ask students how the pictures relate. Then, have students share other ideas for pictures that relate (example: egg and chicken). Name this as creating an analogy. Then, have students work independently or with a partner to finish the analogies. Challenge students to name the analogy relationship (part to whole, opposites, etc).
