The goal of this worksheet is to teach eight happy and sad idioms. There are 4 tasks all together in which your students will discover new idiomatic expressions and practise using them both in speech and in writing.
First, students read short dialogues and choose the correct word in each idiom for expressing happiness and sadness. For example, they have to decide whether it should be: over the star, moon, or sun. Thanks to these short dialogues, they will discover the meanings of idioms such as such as ‘be over the moon‘, ‘sb’s heart sank‘ or ‘go to pieces’.
The speaking part of the worksheet starts with a short task in which students have to react to some situations using idioms from the previous exercise. Next, to practise more, students need to write down 5 Wh-questions with the happy and sad idioms they’ve learnt. Finally, they work in pairs, and ask and answer the questions they’ve created.
