Crossword puzzle (with solution) based on the novel by George Orwell.
There are 21 words in the puzzle. The clues are based on characters represented (not characters in the novel!), and ideas and terminology useful to the study of Animal Farm.
This puzzle is designed to be used after studying the novel, when students are familiar with the characters, the plot, the political background/allegorical references and the history of Russia at the time.
This is an active learning activity. I have included a lot of detail in the clue text to ensure students are learning when working on this task. An example of the clue text is that for Karl Marx - "Old Major's dream which inspired the Rebellion is based on this German philosopher's theories about society, economics and politics as outlined in The Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital".
A word bank is included to assist students. To make it more challenging, you could redact the word bank.
The solution appears on the second page. Download the preview file to see the grid and the solution to the puzzle.
