This Word Search Puzzle contains 98 Key words from the classic Greek epic poem, "The Iliad", by Homer, including all of the main characters and important locations. In addition, it contains a SECRET MESSAGE! Once your students locate all of the words on the Word List, the remaining characters, in order, spell out your SECRET MESSAGE.
These spaces are left blank, so that you may add your own message. If you wish to lengthen the message, simply leave out one or more letters that are only used by one word (Remember to delete the word from the Word List).
A Key to the puzzle will soon be available. Just email me at email@example.com, and I'll get it out to you ASAP!
This puzzle makes the perfect EMERGENCY LESSON PLAN! It will occupy your students, in an interesting and relevant task, for most of a class period! It also makes an ideal Supplement for Test Prep, or as an opportunity to offer a little bit of Extra Credit (That's what I do with it!). Thanks!
