FREE Movie + Video + Cartoons Worksheets

Lets face it: Even the most enthusiastic ESL class sometimes goes through dull periods. No matter how much you switch up the activities and topics, theres only so much English that your students can absorb at any one time. Still, that limit is sometimes a lot higher than your students believe it is - and the genuine exhaustion caused by a challenging topic, is very different from boredom that comes from too much repetition. When your students are just plain bored of board work, thats when its time to break out one of your emergency activities - the ones you know will raise your classs mood.

Youve probably got some go-to activities of your own - but it never hurts to add some new ones to your arsenal. Thats exactly why BusyTeacher.org has put together this collection of 1,099 worksheets themed on movies, cartoons, and viral videos. You wont have to wonder whether these activities will catch your students interest - because each one is based on a movie or show that they already love to watch. For those times when ESL starts feeling a little too abstract, these worksheets bring English back into the real world, and inspire students to use it to talk about their own pop culture.

But thats not the only reason these 1,099 worksheets are handy. BusyTeacher.orgs movie and video worksheets help you organize lessons on a wide variety of ESL areas - from basic grammar and vocabulary to listening and speaking. Whether your students are level-one beginners or level-five English experts, weve got worksheets appropriate for their level. In fact, many of these worksheets can be adapted for different ESL levels - meaning they can be used again and again in all the classes you teach.

While some of BusyTeacher.orgs 1,099 movie and video worksheets offer simple fill-in-the-blank or matching exercises, others provide frameworks for games and activities, encourage students to listen and answer questions about what happens in video clips, or even spark open-ended discussions about their favorite movies and shows.
