PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This crossword is an activity designed to ensure that students are familiar with the more difficult words from the first chapter of the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

There are 39 words/clues in the puzzle. Words are.. accomplishment, arrogant, bond, brute, charming, cocktail, commute, contempt, cousin, cynical, divan, effeminate, egotism, elaborate, eyesore, fashionable, fractious, gaiety, hulking, insincerity, intimate, languid, libel, mansion, polo, prominent, race, reserved, romantic, silhouette, slender, smirk, sophisticated, sturdy, supercilious, tolerance, tournament, uneasy and veranda.

Many of these words are important because they're adjectives used to describe characters. I generally give students a pre-reading exercise to define and explain these words before they read the chapter. The crossword makes a nice summary activity at its conclusion.

Although students often see the puzzle format as a fun task, it is an active learning activity. It helps students with spelling and comprehension of new words.

A word bank is supplied to support students.
The solution is printed on the second page. Download the preview file to see the solution and the grid.
