28 clue crossword puzzle (with solution) based on the adventure novel which features three “dumpsite boys” who make their living picking through the trash in a unnamed Third World country.
This is a summary quiz, designed to be used after reading the novel. It could be used as a homework assignment or as a filler exercise in class 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 include the names of characters and places important in the study of Trash. A word bank is included to assist students.
