Product Description
This offering is a four puzzle package of puzzles involving Herman Melville and one of his novelettes, Billy Budd. Included are a "math essay" on general knowledge about Melville in which addition and subtraction are used to come up with the appropriate dates and numbers. (The arithmetic is NOT hard, just good to learn/know.) There is a word search on finding the 14 major characters in Billy Budd that will make a nice introduction to reading the novelette. There's a crossword puzzle that would provide a nice look back at Billy Budd. The clues on Billy Budd 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/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" sixteen of the more difficult/useful words in Billy Budd that are nice to know even today.
