168 FREE USA Worksheets

FREE USA Worksheets

Many ESL teachers from English speaking countries, like the USA, teach abroad and want to share their culture with students and many teachers who are non-native English speakers want to teach their students about English speaking countries. Both groups can find 168 excellent worksheets on the USA in this section for all different levels and ages as well as on a variety of topics such as holidays, history, and American slang. This USA worksheet could be used as an introduction to five popular holidays celebrated in America. There is a short summary for each holiday, a list of vocabulary words, and some comprehension questions. You could use this in one lesson or split the material up to include in holiday lessons throughout the year. The latter option might be less overwhelming especially for lower level learners or students with little prior knowledge of these holidays. Before giving your students information about a holiday, see what they already know by eliciting pieces of information and writing key points on the board. There is a variety of worksheets in this section so if you would like to focus on another aspect of the USA, take a look at the other available worksheets.
