Fun activity with 20 words for students to find. Each word is a character name or location from the novel Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo. Students will enjoy it. It is encouraging them to learn how to spell names/places mentioned in the novel.
In addition to finding words in the grid, students are asked to write one sentence for each word. This helps reinforce their knowledge of characters/places from the novel.
This is the type of activity that could be used as a homework assignment or as class work on an occasion when you need a filler, and have nothing prepared.
The solution is given on the second page.
