Active learning task disguised as a fun activity. There are 27 words for students to find. These words are primarily character names, place names and a few key terms (Noise, Spackle).
Students will enjoy this activity. In addition to finding words in the grid, students are asked to write sentences using the words. This helps reinforce their knowledge of character and plot.
This is the type of activity that could be used as a homework assignment, for a substitute teacher, or as class work on occasions when you need a filler, and have nothing prepared.
The solution is included.
