Product Description
33 word puzzle based on The Turning, The Picnic, and Breakdown sections of the novel by Malorie Blackman (chapters sixteen to forty-two). These are important words from the text which students should be familiar with for discussion and analysis of it.

Words in the puzzle are..affair, alcoholism, attitude, audacity, despise, determination, divorce, enemy, equality, feeble, funeral, glee, goad, history, ineffectual, lie, livid, lonely, naïve, outrage, pointless, propaganda, riot, robot, sanity, secretary, slave, slavery, sour, suicide, sullen, suspicion, and warmonger.

I use this type of activity to take a breather from reading to the text, and to ensure that students are familiar with the vocabulary they will need when completing higher level assignments based on the novel. It's a good Friday afternoon activity, or useful for early finishers, or to give to a sub teacher. Students often see the puzzle format as a fun task, and often don't even consider it to be work!

A word bank is included to support students. You could redact this to make the puzzle more challenging.

The solution is printed on the second page. Download the preview file to see the solution and the grid.
