This puzzle covers major early civilizations of the world as well as various eras. It is appropriate for grades 7 and above, possibly with accommodations for grades 7 and 8. These accommodations could include giving several free answers when introducing the puzzle (or filling in several answers before copying the puzzle for students), or allowing students to work in pairs, or teams.
Crossword puzzles are excellent learning tools as they are self-correcting, can promote higher levels of thinking, and can include review of such terms as homophones, antonyms, synonyms. They also function extremely well for end-of-unit reviews.
