Halloween lessons using authentic material

Halloween has come to terrorize y’all’s neighborhoods! I don’t know about you, but Halloween has always made me so excited that I have to hold my horses to go off the limits! If I could, I would fill my classroom with fake insects, mummies, witches and all sorta of “spooky-related” stuff. For that, I have come up with six different lessons from A1 to B2 levels using TV series and movies segments. They are mostly based on listening comprehension and organized in lead-in/vocabulary task > gist > detail > follow-up.

The link for the worksheets and the videos will be available at the end of the post.
