This is an extremely fun project and a great lay to link art with the English Department. When working at another school, I had students that spoke other languages and the would do idioms from their culture and when the project was done, there was some really awesome conversations about the Idioms. Students choose an idiom and create a sculpture showing the literal idiom. They choose the best hand building techniques and go for it. It's been a favorite of mine and my students for years.
This Bundle includes:
Lesson Plans: Standards, Objectives, Bell Ringers, Vocabulary
Power Point Notes and Sketches Handout
List of Idioms
