This Word Search puzzle contains over 120 words from the novel, "Frankenstein." It also contains a SECRET MESSAGE, which you can alter to fit your particular class! Once the students find all of the words, they copy down the remaining characters to form the SECRET MESSAGE!
This puzzle makes the perfect Emergency Lesson Plan! It will occupy your students, in an interesting and relevant activity, for most of a class period! Also perfect as a supplement to test preparation, and an opportunity to offer a little bit of Extra Credit (That's what I do; my SECRET MESSAGE offers students 10 points, if they complete the puzzle).
To enter your own SECRET MESSAGE, just replace the question marks in the grid with any letters or characters you wish. (A Key will be available soon; just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll send it to you for free. With the Key, you could lengthen your SECRET MESSAGE simply by removing a few letters that are only used once. Remember to remove the word that uses that letter from the Word List). Save the puzzle and enter a new message every year!
