Let students play around a create their own copy of a Criss Cross puzzle of the words listed.
1. Have them take two sheets of loose leaf paper an turn one sheet sideway. have them put the sheets on their desk and look at it. it makes a grid to create a practice of their criss cross puzzle.
2.To make this work thy need to find FOUR works that intersect like a # sign does. Once they have that, set those words aside and find a second set of FOUR word and do it all over again.
3 With a "head" and a "tail" now made the rest of the puzzle should be easy. have stunts connect all the rest of the words finishing with "head" and "tail"
4. Points are based on how many are not connected.
5. If done properly. all words should be crossed TWICE and only TWICE.
6. Now put your Criss Cross final on the grid paper.
