Digital and traditional! Get an interactive Match-Up Game for iPads or computers, and a match game, which is perfect for the classroom. In each game, you get 12 Greek and Roman idioms and their definitions for students to connect. It's a great REVIEW for individual students or the whole class!

These games cover the following 12 idioms that we use today: Achilles heel, Trojan horse, spill the beans, it’s all Greek to me, beware of Greeks bearing gifts, carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders, resting on his or her laurels, leave no stone unturned, the Midas touch, don’t open Pandora’s box, and Herculean task. And each has an easy-to-understand definition.

When you download this game as a PDF, you get 24 cards to cut out and use in a hands-on Match Game.

Then open the corresponding Easel activity, which is found on this web page. Use the Easel platform, which is a FREE Teachers Pay Teachers resource, and assign the Match-Up Game to your students digitally through it.

Your students will be able to play a Match-Up Game with their parents, classmates, or even by themselves on an iPad or a computer. Each box with a number on it moves. Students will move two boxes to reveal either idioms or definitions. They will work to match the Greek and Roman idioms to their corresponding definitions.

It’s that simple!
