Active learning task disguised as a fun activity. There are 35 words for students to find. Each word is an important vocabulary word in comprehension and analysis of the novel by Barbara Kingsolver.
Students will enjoy the word search task. It encourages them to learn how to spell (new) words.
In addition to finding words in the grid, students are asked to write one sentence using each word. This helps reinforce their knowledge of the novel and their comprehension of new or useful vocabulary.
This is the type of activity that could be used as a homework assignment or as class work on an occasion when you need a filler, and have nothing prepared.
