Fourth Quarter: 5. P6 Analogies Due May 6 29 by 10 p.m.  

Analogies compare two sets of items to each other. The idea here is an analogy helps readers or listeners make connections and better understand relationships. There are many different types of analogies (part/whole, opposites, item/use, and more).

As we’ve discussed in class, it’s important to speak the connection (a finger is part of a hand just like…) instead of saying (finger is to hand as…). Be sure your items are in the same order (part : whole :: part : whole).

Create/find/list two analogies and write them here; identify the types (for example: antonym). Please use two different categories of analogies.

Analogy Example (antonym):
Hot is the opposite of cold just like up is the opposite of down.

Analogy Example (part/whole):
Fingers are part of a hand just like blades of grass are part of a lawn.

(Antonym): Hot is the opposite of cold like dogs are the opposite of cats. (Object and related object): A tractor is to a farmer like skates are to a hockey player.

(Object and Related Object): Plants need carbon dioxide like animals need oxygen. (Antonym): Red is the opposite of green like fire is the opposite of water.

1.An explorer relies on a map just as a driver relies on a GPS. 2. A heart is to humans as chloroplast is to plants.

1. A Jewish star is important to a jew like a cross is important to a Christian. 2. Lungs are to humans as gills are to fish.

1. A writer relies on a pen just as a soldier relies on a sword. 2. Humans need oxygen just as trees need carbon dioxide.
