Crossword puzzle based on The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare.
This is a fun activity which could be used for revision, or as a class or homework assignment when students have completed their reading of the play. This is also the type of activity you could use if you have nothing else prepared and need a filler.
There are 37 clues. Each entry is a character name, a location or a keyword from a quote from the play. To see the words used in the puzzle, download the preview file (the crossword solution).
I've added as much detail as possible to the clues, so that students are actively learning (or reinforcing their previous knowledge) when completing this activity. Although a fun task which really engages students, it is challenging, and it forces them to work/think.
A word bank is included to assist students. You could redact this to make it more difficult.
