42 clue crossword puzzle (with solution) based on the novel by Theodore Taylor.
This is a summary quiz, designed to be used after reading the novel. It could be used as a homework assignment, for assessment, or as class work. You could use it as a filler exercise if you have nothing else prepared. I find that students enjoy the crossword format (and don't see it as work), even though it can be quite challenging.
Clues include character names and place names mentioned in the novel. There are also some important vocabulary words, with which students should be familiar.
A word bank is included to assist students. You could redact this to make it more difficult, and set the puzzle as an open book scavenger hunt.
