Idiom Imagery Challenge:
This activity will allow you to kill two birds with one stone: students will come to a better understanding of idiom, and get to practice the use of sensory imagery in their writing.
First, there is a slideshow that reviews idiom and imagery. It also instructs students about how to complete the challenge. Next, you will find two different options for for the activity, which students can do alone or in groups. With both options, students will need to write a paragraph that uses sensory imagery and DOES NOT state the idiom. Then, another student or group will attempt to identify the idiom.
The student handouts are completely editable, so you can tweak them to meet the needs or your class. There are eighty-eight different idiom cards, as well as an editable template, should you choose to add more.
I also have The Metaphor Challenge
