Fun activity with 26 words for students to find. Each word is a character name or location from the novel The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Students will enjoy it. It is encouraging them to learn how to spell names/places mentioned in the novel.
In addition to finding words in the grid, students are asked to write one sentence about each character or location. This helps reinforce their knowledge of important characters and places in the novel.
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.
The solution is given on the second page.
