Product Description
Puzzle based on Chapters 21 - 30 of the novel by John Steinbeck.

Each of the 51 words in the puzzle is an important word in this section of the novel.
Words are.. agitator, barn, blab, blame, boll, boxcar, cleat, committee, croquet, culvert, decay, destitute, dexterous, fetid, freak, gaunt, graft, harmonica, hunch, interlace, levee, lynch, martyr, midwife, mope, nimble, nursery, outlaw, pall, quarantine, ravenous, restless, rifle, riot, roadster, rot, shame, sluggish, sodden, soul, spunk, squad, stillborn, strike, thicket, twitch, vines, warrant, whimper, windfall, and withdrawn.

This is an active learning activity disguised as a fun task. It is the type of activity that you could use with early finishers, or give to a sub teacher, or use as a filler on a day when you have nothing else prepared. You could also use as part of an assessment. To get a second activity out of this resource, you could ask students to write a new sentence for each word which shows its importance in the novel.

A word bank is supplied to support students. You could redact this to make the puzzle more challenging.

The solution is printed on the second page. Download the preview file to see the solution and the grid.
