Instructional Ideas
  • Project onto the board and have class members work together to complete the puzzle
  • Use the crossword as a model for learners to make their own holiday or winter-inspired puzzles
Classroom Considerations
  • An electronic version of "Auld Lang Syne" plays while the game is open; consider having learners mute their devices or use headphones to avoid distracting others
  • The puzzle considers misspelled words as incorrect, but will not provide hints without the user losing points, so consider adding a word bank to the board or a handout
  • Users can play the game online or print a worksheet to complete
  • A non-denominational way to celebrate the holidays in class
  • None
