This resource contains two crossword puzzles about spiders that review 16 vocabulary words related to spiders. The terms used in both puzzles are: abdomen, arthropods, arachnids, cephalothorax, eight, fangs, girl, insects, mummy, orb, poison, silk, spinnerets, sticky, sucks, and two. One crossword includes a word bank which makes it easier while the other does not. Even though the same vocabulary is used for each crossword, the grid on each one is laid out differently. You might use the one with the word bank as a review and the one without the word bank as a homework assignment or as a quiz.
Both puzzles are a supplement to a mini unit called “Spiders,” but they can definitely be used without that resource. Answers keys for both puzzles are included.
