A differentiated packet of crossword puzzles to use for students to practice the cardinal directions. Versions A and B feature the same questions in different order (to prevent copying but allowing pair work.) Only north, south, east and west are included in these two puzzles. The third puzzle is for slightly more capable students and includes intermediate directions (northeast, etc.) The attractive, easy to read format is suitable for younger and older students who need to practice the basic map reading skill of using the cardinal directions. Answer keys included, but students will need their own map of the United States.
