Product Description
This offering is a three puzzle package involving Thanksgiving. Included are an arithmetic-based essay where the student does elementary arithmetic to supply the numbers for my prose . . . hopefully mentally. The student will need to know how to add and subtract (which I've given instructions for), evaluate simple exponents, and obey the order of operations. There is a food search where the student will find 20 of the more common foods partaken on Thanksgiving, then uncover a hidden message using the un-crossed-out letters. And there's a crossword puzzle that provides a bit of history and look at some of the foods consumed on T-Day. There are about 16 of clues (which I've put in bold-face type) that deal specifically with Thanksgiving Day. These clues are not too deep, but the puzzle WILL be enough to force some thinking. My solution page also explains some of my more "uncommon" answers. For younger students it might be best to work the puzzle in pairs or groups. It's intended to generate a challenge while providing some fun. Learning some new vocabulary is always a goal of mine in my crosswords. 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. My goal, as always, is to have some fun learning!
