One of the best ways to grow our brain or increase intelligence is to work on our reading comprehension. Our language is filled with figurative speech and little nuances that can really through a reader off track if they are unfamiliar with the term or terms.
Here are five common idioms all related by horses ---this is for you Samantha Wood!
1. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth
2. From the horse's mouth
3. Change horses in midstream
4. Put the cart before the horse
5. A dark horse
Pick one idiom, write down the meaning, research the origin of the idiom, and use the idiom in a headline sentence. For example: Mrs. Bockius is a last minute pick for the USA Alpine Olympic Team. A true dark horse!
