PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

30 clue crossword puzzle (with solution) based on the novel. Because the movie adaptation is so close to the original text, the crossword works with it too.

This is a summary quiz, designed to be used when students are familiar with the plot and characters.

The puzzle could be used as a homework assignment or as a filler exercise in class if you have nothing else prepared. I find that students enjoy the crossword format (and don't see it as work), even though it can be quite challenging.

Clues include the names of characters and places mentioned in the story. I've written each clue with as much detail as possible. In this way, students' knowledge of the characters and plot is re-enforced. Even if you're using it as a filler, it is an active learning activity.

A word bank is included to assist students.
