Fun activity based on the novel by John Green.
This is a summary quiz, designed to be used after reading the novel. It could be used as a homework assignment, for assessment (an open book exam) 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.
