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 in each set 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 idioms included in this set are: ants in your pants, at a snail’s pace, birds of a feather, like a bull in a china shop, busy as a beaver, clam up, cry crocodile tears, cry wolf, like a deer in the headlights, a fish out of water, in the dog house, let the cat out of the bag, the lion’s share, night owl, opening a can of worms, pull a rabbit out of a hat, a sitting duck, sly as a fox, to smell a rat, raining cats & dogs, talk turkey, to count your chickens before they hatch, a wolf in sheep’s clothing, hold your horses and cat got your tongue?
