Idioms are phrases that say one thing but mean something else. They are a little like puzzles: try imagining a picture or a situation that the phrase suggests and then draw what you hear, not what the true meaning is.
- White construction paper
- Pencil and eraser
- Crayons, colored pencils or colored markers
- Idioms printed on a sheet of paper and then each cut separately to be drawn by the students. Put in a container to draw from.
- Draw an idiom slip out of the container. Take turns reading your idiom and make a guess what it means.
- Draw a picture depicting what the idiom says, not what it means.
- Color your picture. Glue the idiom to the bottom right corner of your project.
