Crossword puzzle (with solution) based on the novel by Kate DiCamillo.
This is a summary quiz, designed to be used for fun, after reading the novel. It could be used as a homework assignment or as a filler exercise in class if you have nothing else prepared. I find that students enjoy the crossword format (and don't see it as work), even though it can be quite challenging.
There are 44 clues - each is the name of a character, a place or a vocabulary word used in the novel. I've put in as much detail as possible into the clues, so that students are learning while they work on this activity. A word bank is included to assist students. You could redact this to make it more chanllenging.
