The Old Man and the Sea Part 1 Scavenger Hunt and Crossword Packet
I find that my students often get bored doing the same comprehension and vocabulary activities while reading short stories and novels. So I mix it up by sprinkling in a scavenger hunt and/ or crossword puzzle to add fun and variety. This packet includes,
1) The Old Man and the Sea Part 1 Scavenger Hunt for Information
This is a 36 question scavenger hunt related to the characters, events and vocabulary for part 1 of The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway. It is meant to enhance enjoyment and comprehension while reading the novel. It covers the first 20 pages of the book and finishes as the Old Man is about to go fishing. It is intended to heighten enjoyment and comprehension in this chapter. My students loved it and I think yours will enjoy it too.
2) Old Man and the Sea Part 1 Crossword Puzzle (2 versions)
This a challenging and comprehensive crossword puzzle related to the characters, events and vocabulary in part 1 of the classic novel, The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway. It also covers the first 20 pages of the story (pages 9-29), just before the old man goes fishing.
I have mixed up the clues in two versions to prevent copying. I have included both the crossword weaver and PDF versions of all puzzles as well as answer puzzles. It is very comprehensive and a great assessment activity
I have also included the crossword clues to make it easier to edit and recreate your own puzzle.
