This PowerPoint slideshow will help your students recognize and explain the meaning of idioms. Two birds carry on an interesting conversation, as one bird uses idioms and the other gets confused. It’s funny, and your students will explore idioms like: out of the blue, put a sock in it, take it easy, a piece of cake, driving me bananas, hold your horses, take a chill pill, time flies, don’t spill the beans, feeling blue, break a leg, the ball is in your court, that’ll cost you an arm and a leg, we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it, every cloud has a silver lining, and more.
Take a look at the Preview to see some of the slides in this slideshow.
