Crossword Puzzle with word bank and solution based on the Italian Holocaust movie Life is Beautiful / La vita è bella.
There are 38 clues. Each is the name of a character, a location, the answer to a riddle, an artist involved in the creation of the film, or a key term (vocabulary word) important in analysis or discussion of the film. To see the words used in the puzzle, download the preview file. This is the solution grid.
This resource/activity could be used as an in-class assignment or as homework, to help revise the text, or just for fun. It is a summary quiz, designed to be used after viewing/studying the movie. It's an exercise that works well for group/pair work.
I've specifically written the clues to help students learn/remember key facts by including a lot of detail. In this way, it's not just a time filler.. it's an active learning tool.
