NOTE: This puzzle is meant to be used before students read the book.
This crossword contains 50 challenging words from CALL IT COURAGE. Either as a homework assignment or by allowing students to work in pairs with a thesaurus in class, it's a great way to prepare students for reading the book and understanding the story. Note that the parts of speech as the words are used in the book are included to aid students in finding the exact definition. Examples of clues:
* Tumult ANSWER: uproar
* Albeit ANSWER: although
* Rivulets: small ___ of water ANSWER: streams
* Imperative ANSWER: important
* Nondescript ANSWER: ordinary
FYI: I have narrowed the list of 50 words to 25 and included them in my CALL IT COURAGE edition of Bookmarks Plus, which students can refer to for definitions as they read the story as well as a list of main characters, author information, and more.
