Product Description
Idioms are great fun and upper elementary and middle school students love them, and this lesson is ideal for grades 6-9.

There are many idioms in the English language, and for some reason a large number of them are related in some way to animals. These are thirty common English idioms that have an animal connection, along with their definitions. Students first study and discuss these with classmates and the teacher using the provided discussion guide. This is followed by a set of thirty context sentences where students must use the correct idiom to demonstrate mastery. Answers provided.

NOTE: None of the idioms in this lesson are part of my larger collection of 75 Common English Idioms, so this is all-new material.
