Revision exercise disguised in a fun activity.
This puzzle asks students to find 30 words in the grid. These are the names of characters or important locations in the novel. A second exercise gets students to briefly explain the importance of each character or location in the plot.
This is the type of activity you could use to get students started on writing their own character sketches. It could be used as a filler on an occasion when you have nothing else prepared.
The solution to the puzzle is included.
