31 word puzzle based on Chapters 43 - 64 (The Split) of the novel by Malorie Blackman. These are important words from the text which students should be familiar with for discussion and analysis of it.
Words in the puzzle are..anonymous, arrest, barbaric, barrister, benefactor, blueprint, bomb, casualty, cell, chaos, charge, confession, conspiracy, corroborate, cowardly, cruel, evidence, expel, explosion, grim, innocent, interrogate, legitimate, murder, outrage, panic, solicitor, suspend, target, tense, and terrorism.
This is the type of activity that you could use with early finishers, or give to a sub teacher, or use as a filler on a day when you have nothing else prepared. Although students often see the puzzle format as a fun task, it is an active learning activity. It focuses attention on words which students should understand (and should be able to spell).
You could get a second activity out of this resource if you asked students to write a new sentence using each of the words.
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.
