Talk about Halloween Costumes

Get your students to think and talk about Halloween costumes with this poster for offline and online classes!

Halloween costumes are often a favorite subject of halloween-themed lessons.
We’ve developed 2 posters that work together to get your students thinking and talking about halloween costumes. Use it as a warm-up, end-of-lesson activity, or just something fun to do this week! While it is designed for A1-A2 students, I’m sure an enthusiastic group of B1-B2 students could make something of it!

How to use this activity?

Use these 2 posters one after another. As a warm-up, give your students a few minutes to write down as many costume ideas as they can either in the ZOOM chat or on a piece of paper.

The first poster is for students to choose their costumes.

  1. Display the poster.
  2. Give students a minute to put together the 3 stickers in order to create a unique costume. For example, a friendly Egyptian ghost.
  3. You could also put your students in pairs and have partners choose each other’s unique costumes.
  4. Or, have a student choose one unique costume for the whole class and then move on to poster 2.

The second poster is for creating their costumes.
Students must put together their costume at the last minute before a big halloween party!
They must use at least 2 objects they found in their house + at least 2 other items which they can come up with on their own.

  1. Display the poster.
  2. Give students a couple of minutes to choose at least 2 objects from the poster to help them make their costume.
  3. Next, give students a minute or two to choose 3 articles of clothing they actually have in their closets at home.
  4. Give students another couple of minutes to choose 1 or 2 more objects not found in their closet or on the poster to complete their costume.
  5. Next, each student present how they made their last minute halloween costume.

I have been teaching English abroad since receiving my CELTA certificate in Poland in 2018. I enjoy tracking my individual students’ development but love having lessons with big groups! Now that I teach online, I am accompanied by my sidekicks Olaf, Mała, Pirate and Bandit on a regular basis.

It takes a team of 13 to create and produce this material. In order for that to continue, please think about purchasing your own subscription to ESL Expertz and encourage your colleagues to do the same. We appreciate your confidence and support!
