Tangerine Written by: Edward Bloor SpringBoard Book Activity 3.2 What is a simile?

A comparison between two unlike things, using like or as, to make a vivid and emphatic description. Example: The dog was as big as 4 story building. Example: The meatloaf tasted like a pile of cardboard.

What is a metaphor? A comparison between two unlike things, in which one thing becomes another. Example: The tears were a waterfall streaming down her face. Example: The car was a lion roaring down

the track. Why do we need to use Imagery? Imagery- the use of figurative language and other descriptive language that appeals to the senses.

This allows the readers to see, taste, touch, hear or feel an object. Example of Imagery The hot July sun beat relentlessly down like an oven cooking a pizza, casting an orange glare over the farm buildings, the fields, the pond. Even the usually cool

green willows bordering the pond hung wilted and dry. Our sun-baked backs ached for relief. We quickly pulled off our sweaty clothes and plunged into the pond, but the tepid water only stifled us and we soon climbed onto the brown, dusty bank. Our parched throats longed for something cool--a strawberry ice, a tall frosted glass of lemonade.

We pulled on our clothes, crackling underbrush, the sharp briars pulling at our damp jeans, until we reached the watermelon patch. As we began to cut open the nearest melon, we could smell the pungent skin mingling with the dusty odor of the dry earth. The smell was a rainbow in the sky; so beautiful. Suddenly, the melon gave way with a crack, revealing the deep, red

sweetness inside. SpringBoard Book Activity 3.3 Back Cover of Tangerine
