This crossword puzzle contains anagrams of familiar words from FAREWELL TO MANZANAR. Every clue is a scrambled word that students have to unscramble in order to place it in the puzzle grid. For example, “meeny” translates to “enemy,” and “druGsa” translates to “guards.” In some clues, the first letter of the word is capped (as in the “guards” clue above) to aid students in decoding the word. Students might not know all the answers, but, as with all crosswords, answers are revealed as they fill in the ones they do know. A unique spelling workout!
