A girl made a soup robot. How is this an ESL video lesson? Wait and see.
Simone Giertz is amazing. What? You don’t know her? She does some crazy stuff and is super funny.
Check out some of her stuff.
So, among other crazy things, Simone created 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.
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!
