British history for ESL kids and primary school

1. As an introduction tell the Legend of George and the Dragon. You can also watch the story of St. George. I recommend George and the Dragon story from British Council website.
2. Then, divide your students into groups of five and ask them to draw a dragon, decorate it and label the body parts.
To do the task more challenging your students can make speech bubbles with short sentences like in the example:
