These two puzzles come out of Roald Dahl's short story, "Lamb to the Slaughter". The word search is 70 items and the Crossword has 38 clues and answers. Answer KEYS are provided for each puzzle. This is a four page PDF file and ready for immediate duplication. It would be an excellent activity for pre or post story reading. It could be used as extra credit or given as a homework assignment or filler activity when a substitute teacher has the class.
