Handout Objective

This handout focuses on 6 idioms about animals and introduces another 7 in a reading activity.

An Idiom is an expression that may not have an obvious meaning. English idioms are often based on analogies and metaphors and are an important part of everyday English. Students can find them difficult to understand even in context, so they need to familiarize themselves with the meaning and usage of each idiom, but this can be fun.

Idioms introduced in this handout:
fishy, kitty corner, nest egg, pig out, chicken out, hold your horses, cat got your tongue, a little bird told me, straight from the horse’s mouth, take the bull by the horns, kill two birds with one stone, a fish out of water, as sick as a dog.
