NOTE: THIS PUZZLE IS MEANT TO BE USED AFTER STUDENTS HAVE READ THE BOOK.
All of the answers to this crossword are challenging words from THE WESTING GAME--one word from each chapter. Students first read explanations of what an analogy is and the difference between a synonym analogy and an antonym analogy. They then solve the puzzle by completing the analogies. Below is an example of a synonym analogy clue from the puzzle.
heal : cure :: SCRIMP : _____. Answer: save
And here's an example of an antonym analogy clue.
carry : drop :: RELINQUISH : _____. Answer: keep
Clever concept and so much more fun than simply memorizing definitions!
