This offering is a four puzzle package of puzzles involving Robert Louis Stevenson and one of his books, Treasure Island. Included are a "math essay" on general knowledge about Stevenson in which addition is used to come up with the appropriate dates and numbers. (The addition is NOT hard, just good to learn/know.) There's a puzzle blending together learning about homonyms and powers of two (for STEM teachers (?). There is a word search on finding the 17 major characters in Treasure Island that will make a nice introduction to reading the book. And there's a crossword puzzle that would provide a nice look back at Treasure Island. The clues on Treasure Island are not deep at all, 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.
