Crossword puzzle (with solution) based on the novel by John Boyne. Note: American English spelling of the word pajamas!
This is a summary quiz, designed to be used after reading the novel. It could be used as a homework assignment or as a filler exercise in class if you have nothing else prepared. I find that students enjoy the crossword format and often don't see it as work.
There are 35 clues - each is the name of a character, or a place or an important vocabulary word. I've added as much detail as possible into the clues, so that students are learning while they work on this activity.
A word bank is included to assist students. You could redact this to make it more challenging.
