Product Description
This 26 word puzzle is a fun method of ensuring that students are familiar with the more difficult vocabulary words from Chapter 9 of the novel set in Poland during World War Two. Once I lay in the street in tears because the Nazis are everywhere and no grown-ups can protect kids from them, not Mum and Dad, not Mother Minka, not Father Ludwik, not God, not Jesus, not the Virgin Mary, not the Pope, not Adolf Hitler.

Words in the puzzle are.. beard, bitter, captured, concern, crouch, damp, detention, disappointed, dizzy, flickering, gawking, giddy, grovel, innocent, leather, panic, plead, promise, scramble, scuffed, sip, sob, toddler, tuft, vomit, and weep.

Although students often see the puzzle format as a fun task, it is an active learning activity. It helps students with spelling and comprehension of new words. This is also the type of activity that you could use as a filler if you have nothing else prepared. I also like to use something like this to mix it up a bit and have new/different activities occasionally.

A word bank is supplied 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.
