This set of 50 task cards is an excellent way for 4th grade students to work with idioms. Each card presents a sentence in which an idiom is used. They are asked to read the sentence, draw a picture of the literal meaning of the phrase and then write the meaning of the idiom in their own words.
Teachers can reproduce the task cards and laminate them for use as center activity in the classroom.
The student drawings could be used as part of an Idiom Bulletin board. Classmates will enjoy viewing other interpretations of the idioms in these task cards
