In this activity, we're going to take a look at some proverbs. What do we mean by the word proverb?
Proverbs are short sentences or phrases that contain life lessons or rules that many people live by.
Don't cry over spilt milk.
This may sound like a simple sentence, and you may well ask yourself why someone would cry when they spill milk rather than clear it up, but, there is a piece of life advice here that may not be immediately obvious.
This proverb means that there is no point in crying or worrying about something that has already happened.
Let's have a look at some more proverbs now.
