Here is a Good Video to Introduce Similarity:
This video has absolutely NOTHING to do with math! However, it is a video of small models of some of Jay Leno's famous cars. It is a great way to relate similarity to the real world. Depending on your class make up you may show just a portion or the whole 10 minute video. Once you have peaked their interest with this real world example you will have their attention when you get into the math of it.
