Crossword puzzle with word bank and solution based on the novel by Todd Strasser.
There are 27 clues. Most are the names of characters in the novel.
This resource/activity could be used as an in-class assignment or as homework, to help revise the text, or just for fun. It is a summary quiz, designed to be used after reading the novel. I've tried to include as much detail as possible, so that students are actively learning while working on this light fun task.
I'm using a one page format for the crossword - students seem to find it easier to complete the task when the clues and grid (and word bank) are on a single page. This also cuts down on photocopying/printing costs.
There is a word bank to assist students. You could redact this to make the activity more challenging.
