RBS mini-Topics feature activities and worksheets with the main difference being they don’t include Clues or Definitions – just Keywords & Terms. So no Standard Crosswords etc. mini-Topics are great for topics when clues and definitions might just get in the way of some fun (eg: Pizza toppings, Easter, April Fools etc.).

Crossword Puzzles are a fun, quick, formative assessment tool, to help monitor progress of what the student has learnt and can recall from the topic content and glossary terms and definitions. (Bloom: Knowledge, Recall). 

Crosswords are also a terrific “Do Now” activity at the start of a lesson or a great time filler at the end for early finishers.
