This is a four puzzle package. One crossword contains clues from the story line of Marigolds; the other handles vocabulary from the same short story. The two word searches are from the crosswords with 20-30 additional words. KEYS are provided. This is a 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.
