Clever Crosswords

This is one of a set of resources developed to support the teaching of the primary national curriculum. They are designed to support the delivery of key topics within science and design and technology. This resource involves learners producing a crossword recapping key terms in the topics studied.

Crossword puzzles are a fun way of recalling key terms and their definitions. Can you create a puzzle for the topics that you have studied?

In this activity learners will create a crossword puzzle using key words from the topics that they have studied, for example electricity, light, magnetism and structures. They will think of important key words, create the puzzle using these and write appropriate clues. They will then test their puzzle by getting a partner to attempt the puzzle.
