Idioms are great fun and upper elementary and middle school students love them. 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 food. These are thirty common English idioms that have a food 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.
At the end is a list if five great extension activities to take your students further in the study of idioms.
NOTE: None of the idioms in this lesson are part of my larger unit plan collection of 75 Common English Idioms, so this is all-new material.
