OUTLINE OF ACTIVITY:

In groups of four, students will work together on four crossword puzzles to share clues, discuss each other’s opinions and come to a consensus on the answer. Each student will have the same grid on their crossword but each will have a different clue for the answers on that grid.

***************************************************************************

EXAMPLE:

The answer might be PENCIL for all four crosswords, but Crossword #1 has the clue “Full of lead.”, Crossword #2 has the clue “Usually long and orange.”, Crossword #3 has the clue “They can be mechanical.” and Crossword #4 has the clue “You might have one in your hand”.

THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS:

1) Four Crosswords (Editable Word documents)

THE 20 TERMS IN THE CROSSWORDS:

water, Moon, trees, atom, brain, worm, gravity, Greenhouse
Effect, medals, banana, heart, bicycle, test tube, light bulb, thermometer, stomach, kidney, acid, DNA, egg

Though a few of the terms are science focused, the terms are general enough that non-science classes will not suffer from their lack of specialized knowledge.
