FREE General Worksheets

This is a subsection of the holidays and celebrations category so all the worksheets that did not fit neatly into another subsection are posted here. This includes worksheets on Kwanzaa, summer vacation, and holidays in general. There are now 46 worksheets posted on this page so take your time going through them. This worksheet for pre-intermediate learners is a short review activity that focuses on five important holidays. Ask students to put the holidays in chronological order, match the holidays with associated activities, and write short passages about their favorite holiday. Since the worksheet can be done individually, be sure to include some whole class activities or pair work in the same lesson. This is just one of many worksheets in this section. Be sure to look at some of the others and check back soon to see newly added worksheets. If you have a particular holiday in mind, choose the appropriate subcategory to find the related worksheets.
