What a fun way to learn about idioms! This activity will have students actively thinking about the colorful, descriptive world of idioms. 30 game boards are included to allow for either small group or whole class participation. The special calling cards, featuring fold over flaps to hide the answers, also give you the option of using them in centers - small group of students can play independently without a bingo caller. Because idioms can be confusing, unlike most of my vocabulary bingo games, each card has all the terms on the cards. Students can look over the phrases and think about which one relates to the idiom given, without having to consider that their card may not have every expression. Options for extending play past the traditional 5 in a row format increase the learning potential. The terms included in this set are: a chip on your , apple of my eye, at the drop of a hat, the ball is in your court, beat around the bush, between a rock and a hard place, chomping at the bit, a diamond in the rough, don’t put all your eggs in one basket, egg on your face, every cloud has a silver lining, face the music, fair-weather friend, give the cold shoulder, head in the clouds, in a nutshell, like a bump on a log., make a mountain out of a mole hill, on the fence, once in a blue moon, out of the blue, pick of the litter, pulling your leg, roll with the punches and two peas in a pod.
