PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These cards can be used as part of an English class. They can be cut up and yellow paper can be used on the back of the cards, then they can be laminated (There are 12 idiom images and their matching explanations)

The cards match with the Operation board game (not the latest version as the new version uses idioms that are not realistic so therefore are not useful for students to learn). The idioms include wrenched ankle, writer's cramp, funny bone, adam's apple, bread basket, wishbone, water on the knee, brain freeze, broken heart, spare rib, butterflies in tummy, charlie horse, ankle bone connected to the knee bone.

In this lesson these cards could be used in many ways. My suggested lesson plan is
1. Show the individual pieces and the idiom (on the screen, or with the cards)
2. Have students predict what the idiom might mean (provide 3 possible answers if students are lower-level).
3. Explain the idioms and show the explanation.

4. Play the Game: Set up the cards like a Memory match game. If a group/student gets a match, they can attempt to remove the piece from the board game (this may need the teacher to reshuffle as necessary).

Variations:
a)Show 3 parts and 1 definition - or vice versa-, the student/group that matches correctly get to attempt to remove a piece from the board game
b) Show the definition and the first student/group to say the idiom gets to attempt to remove a piece from the board game.
