This figurative language activity is a class favorite! Students select an idiom from the list included. There are over 50 idioms to choose from, however, any idiom could be used with this template. Once they have their idiom and find out the definition they will fill in their template with an illustration and meaning for both the literal and figurative meaning of their idiom. This activity shows students the difference between the two (what a difference!) and how/why you should NOT take an idiom literally.
Included: Cover Page, Directions, Possible list of Idioms, Student Template
