5 puzzle King Lear package,Shakespeare,Hamlet,2 crosswords,characters,2 vocab.
Product Description
This offering is a five puzzle package all puzzles centering about Shakespeare's King Lear. I wrote two of the puzzles a couple years ago, a traditional crossword and a character search. This package consists of three new puzzles I've written in re King Lear. It is May of 2017 for those who have bought King Lear puzzles from me previously. With my crossword puzzles I have had some "complaints" that there are not enough theme clues in them. It's very difficult to put too many more than 6 or 7 themed clues in a 15 x15 grid and follow a couple of the "rules" of crossword constructing (180 degree symmetry and no two letter words), so I've made up what I call a pseudo-crossword consisting of 20 questions/clues whereby each of the clues has something to do with King Lear or Shakespeare's poetry. I think you will find it more helpful in the classroom . . . though I like the peripheral things that you learn in a standard crossword myself. Another of the puzzles is a word search wherein the student searches for 18 of the somewhat antiquated words that Shakespeare uses in King Lear. I HAVE given definitions of all 18 words in the list of words/expressions I'm asking the puzzle-doer to find. A third puzzle is another vocabulary puzzle . . . a matching template with two columns, words and brief definitions. The vocabulary words are words that Shakespeare uses in King Lear that have slightly different meanings than what we use today. I believe all three puzzles can be very helpful yet fun in the classroom.
