Thank you for the helpful suggestions. I have added an online interactive idiom game. I have also added a funny idiom video. I added an idiom book making option in the assessment section.

In the instruction section, I have added accommodations for leaner differences.

Something I like about this resource is that it included videos, a NearPod, and cooperative learning. I really liked how there were different media and interactions within the lesson plans.
An opportunity to improve this resource is to create a game using idioms with students. I love the idea of an idiom wall, and I thought it would be fun for students to include a game where students have to find idioms in a text or video, or they create stories with idioms, and whichever team has the most wins.
Something I wonder about this resource is if there was a silly video that embodied all things idioms. The videos are great, but in my experiences, my students would be disengaged rather quickly so for me, I would look for one that my students would think was funny while educational.
One new idea to consider in the design of this resource is to have a culmination activity where students showed their learning by writing a story or acting out a skit with idioms.
