STARDUST - WORDSEARCH
This is just a simple wordsearch I created for my intermediate students who had to do quite a big comprehension follow-up worksheet for the movie Stardust, so this wordsearch came as just a bit of fun. If you like the movie and feel like using it in class, there are several more complicated worksheets about Stardust in my collection.

DEMONS - IMAGINE DRAGONS
Trying to find a new song that has a message and no lyrics I would have to censor, I came across this one.
