Grade seven students describe themselves using similes…

“I am like the ocean. People only know a little bit about me.”

“I am like a map. At first, I’ll be confusing. Figure me out and you will understand completely.”

“I am like the wind. I cannot keep going for a long time in the same direction. I need to try different things in different ways. I have to keep moving forwards or I don’t feel right.”


Aren’t those wonderful descriptions?
