This giant puzzle from What’s That Word? A Fun Way to Build Vocabulary makes a fun group activity. It’s great for your classroom, break room, or family room! The crossword puzzle is printed on 18″ x 24″ paper — big enough for everyone in the room to see. The solution is included on a separate sheet.
The title of each giant puzzle hints at its theme. The “It’s All Greek to Me” crossword puzzle has 15 clues that describe English words that come from ancient Greek originally. These words are monuments! Like Hercules. Or the columns that still stand at the ruins of the Parthenon.
Although the giant crossword puzzles come from the pages of What’s That Word? they can each be used independently as a stand-alone activity. Used with the vocabulary workbook, the crossword puzzles make great warm-ups. They can also be used in the place of tests, or to reinforce vocabulary words.
