Understanding Idioms
(visual/kinesthetic)

Have students look up in a class dictionary the meaning of one of these idioms: listen to one's own heart, have a heart of gold, put one's heart into, be sick at heart. Tell students to make two side-by-side drawings to illustrate their idioms' literal and figurative meanings. Students should write a caption for the two drawings, including the idioms in their sentences.
