An active learning resource that Christopher Boone would enjoy! Crossword based on the novel by Mark Haddon.
There are 29 clues - each is the name of a character, or a place mentioned in the novel. There are also a few words useful to the study of the text - Autism, Asperger's Syndrome and Prime (number). 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.
It could be used as a filler on a day when you have nothing else prepared.
There is a word bank to assist students. You could redact this to make it more challenging.
The solution is also provided.
