OK SOOOOOOOO … many of you struggled with the CommonLit question about the pollen simile. I have added a new question on Google Classroom . You MUST answer this question – it’s kind of like a redo chance. PLEASE READ THE STEP BY STEP DIRECTIONS FOR HOW TO ANSWER!
SAMPLE ANSWER FROM ALI ABBOUD: GRADE A+
DO NOT COPY HIS EXACT WORDS!
Pollen is a fine to coarse powdery substance comprising pollen grains which are male microgametophytes of seed plants. There is no exact weight of pollen because there are so many different types of pollen, but I can say that all types of pollen are very VERY light per grain. Different pollens appear all year round except for winter. Spring is a very good season because we finally have nicer weather and the leaves and plants start to regrow. Pollen is very light and spring is a good time to be alive, so the simile helps the reader understand that the time you spend dining with your relatives, is a time of joy.
