Puzzled by Idioms!

This week, students were introduced to idioms, proverbs, and adages.  We discussed that idioms have literal and figurative (funny) meanings. Students seemed “puzzled” over the meaning of some of the idioms, so we created our own idiom puzzles.

Students cut a piece of construction paper in half to create two puzzle pieces.  On one half, students drew a literal meaning.  On the other, students drew the figurative meaning.

Some of the idioms chosen were: 

Put a sock in it

Face the music

Holy Cow

It’s raining cats and dogs

Cat’s got your tongue
