Fun puzzle with 40 words for students to find. Most are key words from the text. Others are important words with which students should be familiar for discussion and analysis of the text.
Students really enjoy the puzzle activity. But it's not just fun - this task encourages them to learn how to spell these words. A second activity asks students to write one sentence for each word. This helps ensure their understanding of the word and its significance in the novel.
This is the type of activity that could be used as a homework assignment or as class work on an occasion when you need a filler, and have nothing prepared.
The solution is given on the second page.
