Halloween ESL Video Lesson: Simone Giertz Made a Soup Robot

halloween esl video lesson simone giertz

This is a Halloween themed ESL video lesson. Simone Giertz made a robot which fed her pumpkin soup. Sounds weird? Messy? It definitely is and your students are going to love it.

I don’t usually teach younger students, so I don’t do Halloween lessons much. But I love Simone Giertz and I thought this short, funny video would be great as a video lesson. That is the maximum of Halloween themed lesson I can bear.

And, it was shot almost exactly two years ago, spooky!

It’s a simple, one-page PDF worksheet with warm-up questions, vocabulary matching exercise and discussion questions.


Have fun, and don’t forget to share if you like it. Thanks!
