Chains is a historical fiction novel written by Laurie Halse Anderson. Throughout reading the novel, my students focus on learning and using nineteen words. The nineteen words are: pestilence, contraband, torment, repugnant, procure, tranquility, quaint, impudence, fervor, commotion, insolent, tarry, reprimand, vermin, barracks, treason, inferno, sundry. This product contains flashcards for students to utilize in order to practice the vocabulary words. We also play a whole class game with the flashcards. A crossword puzzle activity is also included. There are two different versions of the crossword puzzle to help with differentiation. One version offers a word bank for students who need a little more support. Finally, there is an answer key for the crossword puzzles. This product is ready to purchase, download, copy and use in your classroom immediately.
