Crossword Puzzle (with solution and word bank) based on the first Harry Potter novel by J.K. Rowling.
There are 45 clues. Words used in the crossword include the names of a characters, locations, and other key words important to the plot. This is a summary quiz, designed to be used after reading the novel. Students love the puzzle format, and don't seem to see it as work. However, this is an active learning task. It is both educational and fun.
It's quite challenging.. but I have included a word bank to assist students. You could redact this to make it more difficult.
There is also a solution to assist teachers! Download the solution (the preview file) to see the words used in the puzzle and the grid.
