Product Description
This offering is a four puzzle package of puzzles involving John Steinbeck and one of his books, The Long Valley. Included are a "math essay" on general knowledge about Steinbeck in which addition and subtraction and smaller exponents are used to come up with the appropriate dates and numbers. (The arithmetic is NOT hard, just good to learn/know.) There is a short story search on finding the 12 short stories found in The Long Valley that will make a nice introduction to reading the book. There's a crossword puzzle that would provide a nice look back at The Long Valley. The clues (about 8 of them) on The Long Valley 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/puzzle-doers 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. The other puzzle is a vocabulary matching puzzle that "covers" eighteen of the more difficult/useful words in The Long Valley that are nice to know even today.
