Orion the Hunter is one of the most famous constellations in the sky. It has been identified in various cultures for thousands of years. If you can learn to identify this constellation, you can easily find the rest of the constellations in the winter sky.
Please note that my instruction is based upon how you would observe Orion from the northern hemisphere perspective, not the southern hemisphere.

What you labeled as Cancer is Perseus. The Crab is a bit left of Gemini.

Betelgeuse is originally an Arab name which is "Ibt el-Jawzaa" which literally mean the "Armpit of Gemini". Because Arabs used to call Orion as Gemini and Gemini as the Twins.
