In American Sign Language, we do not interpret the words of the idioms when we are signing. We must understand the meaning of each idiom because they do not translate correctly, This lesson is geared on having students understand the meaning of each idiom and also has a worksheet attached to it in order to reinforce their learning. Aligned to Common Core State Standard: L.7.5

Idioms are difficult for lots of middle schoolers, so this will work well.
