4. Day of the Dead Grammar Review with Idiom
In this worksheet students will discover the hidden idiom by identifying different parts of speech (i.e irregular present tense verbs, comparative adjectives, irregular plural nouns, adverbs, conjunctions, possessive pronouns, and irregular past tense verbs.) After identifying the words according to their parts of speech, the students will then follow the directions and color them accordingly. If students do not have crayons or colored pencils they can simply cross out the words instead. The blocks that remain will reveal the idiom, “Dead to the world.” Next, students write the meaning of the idiom and a sentence using the idiom.

Students will make information questions using the WH-Question Words (who, what, what kind of, where, when, why, how etc.) Students will first read the answer to the question. The underlined word in the sentence will indicated which WH-question word the students will need to use to write the correct question.
