Amazing Success

My students are really enjoying this activity. It is helping with their comprehension skills and then the puzzle ... "Is it really work?" they ask.

A great success, with different levels and varied genre.

Many thanks.

I was just looking for something about 'Tropical Rainforests' - this crossword is ideal for a lesson this week. Looking forward to trying some of the others as well. Many thanks.
