Bumper vocabulary activity based on Chapters 17 and 18 of novel by Roald Dahl.
There are 40 words to find. After they find the words in the grid, a second task asks students to write a new sentence for each word, showing their understanding of it.
Although students often see the puzzle format as a fun task, it is an active learning activity. It helps students with spelling and comprehension of new words.
This is also a useful filler exercise that you could use with early finishers, or on a day when you need something and have nothing else prepared.
The solution is printed on the second page.
