Period One-(6.4d, 7.4c, 8.4a Identify Figurative Language)
This week we are going to continue our review of figurative language by specifically focusing on idioms.  Do you remember what idioms are?  I'll give you a hint by using one of the most common ones. "We couldn't go outside to play soccer today because it was raining cats and dogs." Obviously, it's not really raining cats and dogs. It is just an expression we use to say it's raining very hard.

So the definitions of an idiom is: a common phrase where the words have a meaning beyond their literal meaning

There are many idioms that focus on animals, sports, historical topics, and food.  Today we're going to learn about food idioms.

Now watch this video to learn more about common food idioms.  Some of them you probably have already heard of, and some will be new. You might want to make notes (pause the video and write down short definitions) because we are going to use some of these idioms in our Zoom meeting later today.

After you watch the video, work on this short activity to see how many you can get correct.  There are only twelve idioms in this activity, so you won't have to use all of the idioms from the video.  We will do more practice in the Zoom meeting later today.  I'll post the key at the bottom of the page, so you can check your answers. (You can open this document by highlighting it, then right click, then click on the go to link.) I will also attach the document to an email I will send to everyone.
