Product Description
This word search activity is a fun way for students (English - Grade 9) to locate terms such as literary devices (foreshadowing, irony, and setting) and some of the symbols in Poe's short story, "The Cask of Amontillado" (such as the mason trowel, the family crest, the carnival season, and the cask of wine).

I've had students complete this activity as a quick focus, as well as, an exit activity before leaving as a review of this spine-tingling story about revenge, and the lengths one character goes to in order to get away with the perfect crime.
