This Word Search Puzzle contains over 140 Key words from the novel, "The Jungle," by Upton Sinclair, including most 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 indicated by a Question Mark, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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!)
