Roald Dahl Crossword Quiz

End of term / year fun low-prep activity: giant Roald Dahl crossword quiz puzzle designed to be completed in groups, featuring 111 quiz style clues related to almost all Roald Dahl's children's stories and poetry books and a few related to the writer's life. Ideal for Roald Dahl Day on September 13th, World Book Day, end or start of term fun, at the end of a Roald Dahl author study or just as a Roald Dahl celebration because almost all children love this author and his quirky characters! Why not use it as an early finisher activity, to be completed over several lessons? Suits Key Stage 2 or early KS3 and equivalents. Collaborative completion works especially well as it will spark off informal reading chats as children compete against other groups to finish it, pooling knowledge of this popular children's author's texts - his stories, poems and works of autobiography. Children could research any questions they do not know. In addition to the Solution, I have also included an Answer Sheet with the answers listed in alphabetical order to give out for differentiation or when pupils have done as much as they can. You could print the crossword in A3 but it works fine in A4 too. If you can spare a moment I would be grateful for a review. Many thanks. Books featured are: George's Marvellous Medicine Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator Fantastic Mr Fox Matilda The Witches The BFG The Enormous Crocodile The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me The Twits James and the Giant Peach Danny the Champion of the World Revolting Rhymes Dirty Beasts Esio Trot The Magic Finger The Minpins Boy Going Solo I have another giant crossword for the same age on children's books in general: (Giant Book Crossword) Some of my other popular KS2 / early KS3 literacy resources: Creative Writing Story Prompts Super Sentences For engaging, time-saving printables and presentations to plan Primary Literacy, Maths and French lessons, visit FullShelf Resources
