Monsters Inc.: Describing People (Monsters)'s Physical Appearance

This movie is great and this scene is excellent for the students to practice describing people, but this time describing monsters. It is even more fun than describing people and you can use all the vocabulary taught.

Answer key:

To Have:

He has ...
(Hair, Eyes, Arms, Legs)


To Be:

(Fat, Thin, Short, Tall, Chubby, Slim, Heavy, Medium-Built)


B. Watch the movie segment and then describe the monsters below, using the words in exercise A. Make sure you say, for example, how many eyes, legs, arms the monsters have and their colors too.
