I teach Science and I use a lot of metaphors while teaching, to explain difficult concepts. For example in "atoms share electrons in covalent bonding", I say how two friends can bond by sharing food or stationery etc. and many others. More I am becoming experienced as a teacher, I find myself using more and more metaphors, I hope I am not impacting their way of thinking and understanding in any negative way!
