Product Description
Crossword puzzle based on the lives and work of the Brontë family.

As an introduction to the Brontë novels, how about setting students an assignment to research their lives independently? Use the crossword puzzle (word bank and clues) as a skeleton to the research. At the end of the research, students should be able to explain why each word in the puzzle is important (and solve the puzzle). This is an active learning methodology, designed to stimulate students' interest, without the teacher having to do all of the work. If you need a "starter pack" to get students' going with their project, check out my The Brontës - Reading Comprehension with Differentiated Activities which deals with the same topic.

Each of the 36 words used in the puzzle is a key word in the study of the Brontës. They include names of family members, important locations, titles of the novels, and some key vocabulary. Download the preview file to see the words used in the puzzle.

The puzzle could also be used as an assignment after completion of the a study unit on any of the novels or the family.

The solution is included. There is a word bank to assist students. You could redact this to make it more challenging.
