1) Whole Class Activity: Discuss with your students the difference between literal and figurative. Then, use the illustrations and text box prompts from the first website to introduce idioms. Practice deciphering the meaning of each idiom using sentence context clues as a whole class.
2) Extension: For students already familiar with common idioms and in need of a challenge, use the second website. See if your students can identify each idiom when it is described with animal references.
