Idioms for kids~

     This was a fun project for older students in the elementary grades. They are learning about idioms. They are not going to illustrate what it means but draw the literal meaning of the saying.
This can turn out to be a fun and hilarious project. The children don't know at first what it means and just draw it. Like "Heart of Gold" means a wonderful person who will always , go the extra mile, for you. (ha ha!) They draw a picture of someone with a real heart made out of gold.
 Have some fun with your students this semester using idioms. You can find dozens of them.

I hope you enjoyed these. Sign up to get my weekly blog sent right to your email address.
