Dictionary / Vocabulary activity for use before or after reading Chapter 3 of The Great Gatsby.
Students see this as a fun activity. I see great educational value in it. It helps them with the difficult vocabulary, in terms of both spelling and meaning. This is also the type of task that you could use as a filler if you are not ready to move on, or have nothing else prepared.
There are 35 words/clues in the puzzle. Words are.. acquaintance, bizarre, butler, careless, caterwauling, champagne, chauffeur, condescend, confidential, corps, corpulent, credulity, curiosity, echolalia, enthusiasm, gaiety, hilarity, host, innuendo, irresistible, isolation, jaunty, moth, orchestra, prejudice, prodigality, saunter, scandal, scepticism, sober, testimony, triumph, undergraduate, vicinity and wonder.
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.
