Comparing an elephant to a vacuum....

Now that it is Summer break for us..... I am thinking ahead to our 2011-2012 school year while my boys practice not thinking!!LOL It is Summer ya know!
I am working on our Language Arts curriculum and figuring on how to add some analogy study along with similes and metaphors.
Nothing is harder than trying to remember which is which, who is who and what is what. If I compare an elephant to a vacuum.... is it a metaphor, simile or analogy or all 3 or both or none? And the hard part is.... it seems the more 2-3 people start to figure out what it is...the more confused we become!LOL
So, per our usual curriculum.... I am checking into online games. I am looking for mainly analogy games at this time because I know that once I start to really look and play with stuff.... I can easily go off on a tangent because I get sidetracked by all the cool things out there...... ohhhh, the woes of a homeschool Mom.... too many cool choices out there!LOL

So, does anyone know the answer.... when comparing an elephant to a vacuum..... is it a metaphor, an analogy or a simile?
