48 cards containing common expressions and their meanings for students to use to create improvised scenes.

For ages ten and up

Here is a fantastic collection of idioms set up on drama cards that you can print, laminate and use over and over.

An idiom is a group of words that means something different than the individual words it contains. They create images to convey meanings beyond the literal interpretations of the words. This set contains the idiom and a longer description of what it means. Students must work together and use their creativity to develop scenes based on the idioms!

This is a great activity to use with language arts, or to use with non-English speaking groups!

Examples of idioms:

Take someone under your wing
(Help somebody who is less experienced than you.)

Bite your tongue
(Refrain from speaking for the sake of politeness or peace.)
