Puzzle (with solution and word bank) based on the third Harry Potter novel by J.K. Rowling. This activity could also be used with the movie.
There are 51 clues. Words used in the crossword include the names of a characters, locations, and other key words important to the plot.
Words are Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, James, Lily, Petunia, Vernon, Dudley, Marge, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew, Hagrid, Dumbledore, McGonagall, Snape, Trelawney, Cornelius Fudge, Draco Malfoy, Fred, George, Neville, Seamus, Filch, Pomfrey, Lucius Malfoy, Arthur, Voldemort, Hedwig, Scabbers, Cruckshanks, Buckbeak, Azkaban, Hogwarts, Leaky Cauldron, Hogsmeade, Whomping Willow, Shrieking Shack, Marauder's Map, Daily Prophet, Quidditch, Muggle, Dementors, Werewolf, Animagus, Petronus, Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, Prongs, and Gryffindor.
This is a summary quiz, designed to be used after reading the novel (or watching the film). 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!
