JUST PRINT, CUT, AND PASS OUT these ready-to-go idiom strips. Included are 12 idioms and their 12 meanings, as well as an answer key. I made this little activity after teaching my fifth graders about idioms.
QUICK ACTIVITY: The idioms strips were printed on colored paper, and the meanings on white paper. I had a student stand up and say their idiom, and everyone else listened in to find the match. The student who then had the match would stand up, and everyone else would jot down the pair. Then, we would talk about the meaning and they'd give examples, etc. It was a quick, meaningful activity.
