This offering is a five puzzle package of puzzles involving either O. Henry (William Sydney Porter) or his short story The Last Leaf. Included are a vocabulary/matching puzzle from The Last Leaf wherein the puzzle-doer matches 18 words from The Last Leaf with brief definitions of them. There is a word search on finding 16 short stories that O. Henry wrote over the years. And there's a crossword puzzle that would provide a nice look back at The Last Leaf. The clues on The Last Leaf 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.
