Let's Go Out On a Limb! Learning about Idioms
This lesson was created to teach third and fourth grade students about figurative language. Students will be exposed to several idioms. They will find and learn the meaning of each idiom and how to use it in a sentence correctly. To add motivation, they will work with a partner to create an illustration that shows the literal meaning of their assigned idiom. Finally they will present their completed work to the rest of the class.
