Create Your Own Crossword

Have students choose at least five main entries, subentries, or antonyms from the Thesaurus. Then ask them to create crossword puzzle clues for the words they chose. The clue for each word can be a synonym, an antonym, or a sentence that illustrates the meaning of the word. Tell students to draw and number their puzzle grids, add the numbered clues, and give the puzzles to partners to solve.
