The aim of the activities is to help students gain reassurance in using English words correctly and confidently as they go about their day.
Containing easily identifiable drawings of familiar items, the crosswords can be used either as an in-class project, as a worksheet for school or home, or by students studying alone.
A picture crossword is completed in much the same way as a standard crossword. The difference, however, is that each clue to the written answer is in the form of a picture, rather than a short phrase or sentence.
These activities are also available in a full eBook, 'Picture Crosswords'.
