Everything ESL

You may or may not be familiar with this website by Judie Haynes from New Jersey. It offers lesson plans, vocabulary, teaching tips and resources (some free, others not). See in particular this nice link on animal classification and categorization. Lots of different levels. I’m ticking category 1 ESO but you’ll find material for other levels. Just enter a search term in the EverythingESL search box.
