23 clue crossword puzzle (with solution) based on the novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne.
This is a summary quiz, designed to be used after reading the novel. It could be used as a homework assignment, for assessment, or as class work. You could use it as a filler exercise if you have nothing else prepared. I find that students enjoy the crossword format (and don't see it as work), even though it can be quite challenging.
Clues are character names and place names mentioned in the novel. I have tried to include as much detail as possible in the clue text to ensure that students are actively learning when working on this task.
A word bank is included to assist students. You could redact this to make it more challenging.
