Description: Idioms are like word puzzles where words come together to create a different meaning than what's literally said. So, understanding idioms is like solving a word puzzle, where the words combine to create a different meaning from their literal interpretation. So, let's put the pieces together to figure out the puzzle. The following are 22 cards, each containing an underlined idiom and accompanied by a group of 4 answer choices. Bite off more than you can chew, Cry wolf, Piece of the pie, Hold your tongue, Cost a pretty penny, Break the news, Hit the road, In hot water, A dime a dozen, Better late than never, Burn the midnight oil, couch potato, go the extra mile, hit the jackpot, keep an eye on, Barking up the wrong tree, Caught red-handed, Curiosity killed the cat, Don't cry over spilled milk, Fish out of water, Head in the clouds, and Make a mountain out of a molehill.
