Group members evaluate the meaning of common catchphrases.

Write the following phrases on index cards, one per card. Have each person get in a group of 2 or 3. Then, give one phrase to each group and have them take a few minutes to explain the meaning of the phrase and to give an example of its meaning. Then, have them come back and the share their phrase and findings.
