Learn, match, draw, write, & define common expressions as you celebrate our Earth. Students will gain exposure to and experience with 11 Earth-themed idioms. Game board is also included (can use “learning idioms” or “defining idioms” card sets).
LEARN – cards have idiom and meaning to provide exposure and teach meaning
MATCH – match the meaning to the correct idiom recycling box…can do as cut/paste or can laminate a set and students paperclip the matches together
DRAW & WRITE – students use a template to draw a picture, write the definition, and create a meaningful sentence for each idiom (one idiom per page)
DEFINE – students use idiom cards to quiz each other (can answer verbally or using the white board…students who still require extra support can use the list of all 11 meanings as answer choices)
Students will cut and paste to sort 8 items into two different categories. Also provided is a mat to sort between 4 categories.
Students will describe characteristics of location, action, function, category, time, color, parts. Using this template they will then compare and contrast two concepts using a Venn diagram.
