GIF-based video models of social idioms in context. In this 12-page no-prep resource we focus on the idiom: ‘Hang in there!’
An idiom is a group of words which have a different meaning when used together from the one they would have if you took the meaning of each word separately. For example:
“To cave in” means you stop arguing or resisting and simply give up when you are under a bit of pressure!
As children get older, they may notice that their parents, teachers and friends using lots of idioms in conversation.
In this resource, with the help of GIFs, we explain the idiom ‘hang in there’, contrast ‘hang in there’ with examples of not hanging in there, discuss why it’s important to hang in there, and remind students that a person’s health is most important.
