Puzzle with 21 words for students to find. Each word is a character or vocabulary word associated with the novel Nightjohn by Gary Paulsen. Students will enjoy the puzzle activity. It encourages them to learn how to spell these words.
In addition to finding words in the grid, students are asked to write one sentence for each word, referring to its importance in the novel. This helps reinforce their knowledge of characters/themes/vocabulary from the novel.
This is the type of activity that could be used as a homework assignment or as class work on an occasion when you need a filler, and have nothing prepared.
The solution is given on the second page.
