This offering is a pair of puzzles centered about Shakepeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Both are intended to be "foot off the accelerator but still learn something" puzzles. The vocabulary matching is a nice puzzle to be given BEFORE or even AS READING the play. It can be done individually by both middle school and high school students and could easily be given as an assignment after a test or before a break. I've taken 15 of the more unfamiliar words that the students may not know . . . but still might be of some benefit in today's world and developed a matching puzzle that yields a Shakespeare quote as a final answer. (13 are needed to break the code, two are extra) The crossword is a little more challenging (can be done by individuals in upper grades, as teams in the lower high school levels) and might be implemented as a form of review. About a ten, or so, clues deal with A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare, and plays . . . they're all in bold face type. Remember! The point of a crossword is to have a little fun/challenge while you are learning something. You are not supposed to know each answer right away upon glancing at the clue. It would be no fun if you did. You’d have LEARNED nothing. (This is a message that might be imparted to your students.) I try to phrase enough of the clues so that a student/person will know many of the answers immediately . . . the rest of the clues I want to challenge the doer a little bit. When they’ve learned something through being challenged they’ll appreciate their accomplishment, and the experience, a lot more.
