It is a wonderful puzzle to review the vocabulary about Christmas. It is also great to practice some question words (who, what, when, where, how & how many) with ESL students. It’s also a fun activity to use for homework or for early finishers.
Students use the clues (simple questions) to guess the words or phrases about Christmas and write them in the puzzle. They can use the words from the WORD BANK. With more advanced students, you can use the same puzzle without the word bank to make it more challenging.
Students will practice spelling and reading in English and they will expand vocabulary while having fun. No correction is necessary since the students know that they have got good answers when the whole puzzle is finished.
It can also be used as an activity in a competition between teams. Students brainstorm possible answers and use a dictionary to find the right words.
Students will have 25 words (some phrases) about Christmas to write in the crossword: Santa Claus, ornaments, elf, Rudolph, Christmas, Christmas Eve, Christmas tree, sleigh, stocking, wreath, mistletoe, ornaments, holly, candy cane, gift, bag, down the chimney, star, eight (reindeer), nativity scene, turkey, nothing, under the tree and red.
The download includes the SAME crossword “The Christmas Quiz – Crossword Puzzle”, but with 2 levels of difficulty (total of 4 sheets):
1. EASY - the crossword with WORD BANK with exactly 25 words (some phrases) needed to complete the sentences and the crossword + the adapted answer key)
2. DIFFICULT - the crossword without any WORD BANK + the adapted answer key):
The worksheet looks great in color, but it also prints perfectly in black and white.
Enjoy and have fun with your students! :)
