4 puzzle package,Man Corrupted Hadleyburg,Mark Twain,Vocab,X-word
Product Description
This offering is a four puzzle package of puzzles involving Mark Twain and one of his short stories, The Man that Corrupted Hadleyburg. Included are a "math essay" on general knowledge about Mark Twain in which addition and subtraction and fractions with like denominators are used to come up with the appropriate dates and numbers. (The arithmetic is NOT hard, just good to learn/know . . . and I HAVE included a paragraph explaining how to do the problems mentally) There is a word search on finding 13 of the major players in the story which would make a nice introduction to reading the story. There's a crossword puzzle that would provide a nice look back at The Man that Corrupted Hadleyburg. The clues on The Man that Corrupted Hadleyburg 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" nineteen of the more difficult/useful words in The Man that Corrupted Hadleyburg that are nice to know even today . . . particularly for SATs and ACTs.
