Product Description
NOTE: This puzzle is meant to be used before students read the book.

This crossword contains 50 challenging words from THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER. Either as a homework assignment or by allowing students to work in pairs with a thesaurus in class, it's a great way to prepare students for reading the book and understanding the story. Examples of clues:

* Beguiled ANSWER: tricked
* Audible: able to be ___ ANSWER: heard
* Apathy: lack of ___ ANSWER: interest
* Repentant ANSWER: sorry
* Vagrant: ___ person ANSWER: homeless
* Reluctance ANSWER: hesitation
* Ecstasy ANSWER: joy
* Bona fide ANSWER: real

FYI: I have narrowed the list of 50 words from this puzzle to 25 and have included them on my THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER edition of Bookmarks Plus, which students can refer to for definitions as they read the story. That product can be found here:

Also, to reinforce meaning even more, I have created a synonym/antonym crossword over the aforementioned 25 words. The product can be found here:
