Product Description
This lesson and worksheet uses Tedd Arnold's books More Parts and Even More Parts to teach the concept of literal versus figurative language and idioms.

Common Core Standard:
RS-L 4 (third grade)
Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, distingushing literal from nonliteral language.

After reading the books with your students, you will discuss idioms and brainstorm ideas for them.

Students then draw illustrations showing a literal interpretation of an idiom. For example, a student may draw "all eyes on me" by drawing a bunch of eyeballs on the teacher! There are several examples shown in the book.

A bank of idioms is provided on the worksheet and includes:
I have eyes in the back of my head
She has a heart of gold
Keep your chin up!
Hold your tongue!
It’s sure to crack you up!
I want all eyes on me
Scream your lungs out
It’s raining cats and dogs
She stole my thunder
He has a chip on his shoulder
She is such a ham!
We are all in the same boat
He bit off more than he can chew
She drives me up the wall!
She is head over heels
Hold your horses!
She let the cat out of the bag
He’s pulling her leg
When pigs fly!
