PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Challenging active learning vocabulary activity based on the novel by Thomas Hardy. The puzzle contains 35 words. Some are key words from the text. Others are important words with which students should be familiar for discussion and analysis of the text.

Words are .. auction, chance, character, chorus, coincidence, custom, deception, destiny, drunk, effigy, egotistical, fate, furmity, gossip, humiliate, impetuous, instinct, lonely, mayor, melancholy, mercantile, pathos, respectability, revenge, rival, rural, secret, shallow, skimmington, suffer, temperance, tragic, vain, victim, and volatile.

Although students often see the puzzle format as a fun task, this is deceptive in this case. Students who complete this will have had a real mental workout.

This is the type of activity that you could use with early finishers, or give to a sub teacher, or use as a filler on a day when you have nothing else prepared.

A word bank is supplied to support students. You could redact this to make the puzzle more challenging.

The solution is included.
