Kill two birds with one stone with a fun language arts lesson on idioms. Not only will students learn about this interesting form of figurative language by listening to a Walking Classroom podcast, they will also get some exercise by actually going for a class walk. If individual MP3 players are not available, consider listening to the podcast as a whole group first, and then provide learners with a list of common idioms to discuss with a partner during a class walk. This engaging lesson in would make an excellent addition to a figurative language unit in the upper elementary grade levels.
