Vocabulary puzzle based on Chapters 1 - 8 of the novel.
Although students see this as a fun activity, it is an active learning task. It helps students with the difficult vocabulary, in terms of both spelling and meaning. Use this to take a break from reading, with early finishers, as an assignment or homework, or in class on a day when you have nothing else prepared. It's great to fill a gap!
There are 38 words/clues in the puzzle.
Words are.. arrested, auction, blister, bully, canteen, convicted, counselor, crime, curse, defective, destiny, dig, discipline, eternity, evidence, hammock, homeless, hope, innocent, intelligence, inventor, juvenile, lawyer, lizard, luck, overweight, predator, rattlesnake, recycle, scorpion, shade, shovel, sneakers, souvenir, testify, thirsty, warden, and wasteland.
A word bank is supplied to support students. You could make the puzzle a lot more challenging by redacting this.
