Literal and Nonliteral Language
Understanding the difference between literal and nonliteral language can be tricky, especially for students in the year four who are just being introduced to figurative langauge. This worksheet first provides students with a definition of idioms, or nonliteral language. Then, they are asked to underline the idioms in four separate passages and determine the word meaning using context clues. Finally, they will complete sentence frames breaking down the literal and nonliteral meanings of each idiom.
