Product Description
Many expressions in common use today have interesting histories.

In this 3-page reproducible activity, students first learn the origin of 15 expressions and what they now mean.

Using this information, they then determine what the everyday expression is.

Also included is a separate answer key.

This classroom-tested activity has been used successfully in middle school, high school, and college classes. Created by Susan Thurman.
