Crossword puzzle with word bank and solution based on the movie Forrest Gump.
There are 35 clues. Each is the name of a character, a location, or an artist involved in the creation 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 about characters and places, by including a lot of detail. In this way, it's not just a time filler.. it's an active learning tool.
