1 class period
This lesson includes a fun crossword game for the entire class.
Students are divided into two teams. Play begins when someone from Team 1 reads a clue from Puzzle 1 and tries to identify the answer. A correct response is worth 10 points. There is no penalty for a wrong guess. When a correct answer is given, class members fill it in on the puzzle.
When a player gives the correct answer, their team will read another clue and try to identify the person or term being described. When a wrong answer is given, the other team takes its turn.
When answers 1 through 4 have all been filled in, the team giving the last answer gets one guess at word 5 on the puzzle. The only clues for word 5 are the four intersecting letters from words 1 through 4. Teams will alternate guesses until word 5 has been identified. The correct answer is worth 50 points.
There are eight puzzles in total with five words each. The team with the most points at the end of the period wins the game.
Teacher Instructions and answer key included.
