Analogies are built by establishing a particular relationship between two words, then using that as an example to demonstrate the same relationship between another pair of words. These worksheets define different types of relationships, such as part of a group, distinguishing characteristics, cause and effect, and more. Students will be presented with a word pair whose relationship must be determined in order to correctly match it with another word pair that has the same relationship.
Note: Though it is tempting to say similes and metaphors are analogies, that isn’t quite correct. Similes and metaphors are more artistic comparisons, while analogies are more logical.
