Mythical creatures worksheets
Here is a collection of mythical creatures worksheets that feature all sorts of legendary beasts and monsters. They are particularly useful for Halloween and video game related lessons. You can use them as warmers, coolers or homework tasks.
Younger students really enjoy this kind of vocabulary and many kids are familiar with the creatures from playing computer games and watching movies. If students are not familiar with the vocabulary, give them written or verbal descriptions of the creatures.
