A fun vocabulary puzzle based on The Benefit chapter of the novel by Kathryn Stockett.
Use this activity to get students focusing on words useful for summary and analysis of this chapter. This is an active learning resource, which could be used as a filler for a day when you have nothing else prepared, or you are handing over to a sub teacher.
The 31 words in the puzzle are: accuse, auction, benefit, blab, blackmail, bored, cleavage, drunk, embarrass, escape, gall, glamorous, grasp, hostess, humiliate, liar, overdressed, pie, podium, predictable, proceeds, rip, shrill, sleeve, stare, stoic, sympathetic, tacky, teeter, tipsy, and vomit.
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.
