There are a variety of different ways you can tackle this project.  However, it depends on what your topic is--are you doing this project about a certain book, a certain author, a certain type of literature, etc?  Depending on what you topic is, the following puzzles/games could be adapted.


1.  You could create a word find--choose 7-10 words that are important to or related to your topic.  Hide them in a table with other letters as distractors.

2.  Choose 5-10 important words or concepts related to your topic.  Scramble the letters of each word, and the person doing the puzzle needs to unscramble them.

3.  Create a crossword puzzle from some of the important words or concepts.

4.  Write a short story (one-two paragraphs) that is about your topic.  Leave certain words out.  Provide a word bank to fill in the blanks in the story.
I hope these ideas will help you!
