This 26-question fill in the blank and wordsearch activity is intended to be and was used as a review activity before the test. The questions cover the plot of the entire book. Students must first fill in the correct answers to the 32 blanks (26 questions), and then find those words in the wordsearch, which I copied onto the back. Students were given the majority of the class period to complete the activity in small groups and then we went over the answers together in the last 10-15 minutes of class.
While the active "teaching duration" is limited, I've used that quantity to indicate the duration of the activity, as a whole.
