NOTE: This puzzle is meant to be used before students read the book.
This crossword contains 50 challenging words from AS YOU LIKE IT. Either as a homework assignment or as an opportunity for students to work in pairs with a thesaurus in class, it's a great way to prepare students for reading the book and, thus, understanding the story. Note that the parts of speech are included to aid students in finding the exact definition. Also note that students will benefit from the use of a thesaurus rather than a dictionary.
Examples of clues:
* Albeit (adv.) ANSWER: although
* Augmenting (2 words; v.) ANSWER: adding to
* Ambles: Walks ___ (adv.) ANSWER: slowly
* Irksome (adj.) ANSWER: irritating
