Product Description
Puzzle based on Mark Twain's life and work. This is a fun activity to get students interested in the great American writer.

As an introduction to Mark Twain, how about setting students an assignment to research his life independently? Use the crossword puzzle (word bank and clues) as a skeleton to the research. At the end of the research, students should be able to explain why each word in the puzzle is important (and solve the puzzle). This is an active learning methodology, designed to stimulate students' interest, without the teacher having to do all of the work.

There are 32 words in the puzzle. These include names of family members, biographical details, characters and titles of some of his most famous works. Most of the answers are available using simple searches on the internet. This works well as pair work or as a team activity.

Download the preview file to see the words used in the puzzle.

The puzzle could also be used as an assignment after completion of the a study unit on Twain.

The solution is included. There is a word bank to assist students. You could redact this to make it more challenging.
