Crossword Puzzle with Word bank and solution based on the novel by Louis Sachar.
There are 30 clues - each is the name of a character or place mentioned in the novel. To see the words used in the puzzle, download the preview file, which is the solution.
This resource/activity could be used as class or homework, to help revise the text, or just for fun. I've specifically written the clues to help students learn/remember key facts about characters and places, by including a lot of detail. In this way, it's not just a time filler.. it's an active learning tool.
