Crossword puzzle (with solution) based on the novel by John Steinbeck.
This is a summary quiz, designed to be used after reading the novel. It 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.
The 21 clues include the names of characters and places mentioned in the novel. A word bank is included to assist students. You could redact this to make it more challenging.
