FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “February Idioms from the Heart”
by Margaret Whisnant 5th - 8th Grade
February Idioms from the Heart is a combination history and figurative language lesson.
Each of the forty original sentences, organized as two separate activities of twenty items each, are constructed around an idiom with the word heart in it. Students are challenged to interpret the hidden meaning in each one. The preliminary Student Page briefly explains the history behind our language's large collection of idiomatic expressions that erroneously attribute human emotions and personality traits to the heart.
