Good morning, I've recently created a book of 40 crosswords puzzles to help children learn more about some of the women who changed the world in science, technology, the arts… from the UK to USA to New Zealand to Kenya to the People’s Republic of China… It's a PDF document and is available for download from TES' resources section, by clicking this link... https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/women-who-changed-the-world-11982186 Contents: Authors 1 Authors 2 Film and theatre 1 Film and theatre 2 Leaders in sport Musicians and singers Political leaders 1 Political leaders 2 Science and technology Women in government Agatha Christie, Amelia Earhart, Angela Merkel Benazir Bhutto Carla del Ponte Catherine the Great Christine Lagarde Cleopatra Coco Chanel Eleanor Roosevelt Elizabeth I Elizabeth II Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf Emmeline Pankhurst Florence Nightingale Golda Meir Helen Clark Helen Keller Hillary Clinton Indira Gandhi Joan of Arc Junko Tabei Margaret Thatcher Marie Curie Mother Teresa Oprah Winfrey Queen Victoria Rosalind Franklin Wangari Muta Maathai Wu Yi Solutions included. I believe that "cognitive effort = learning". The more cognitive effort we give to a task, the 'better' we learn it. Whether it’s repeating a song’s lyrics, the spelling of a word, or the steps to solving mathematical tasks, the more cognitive effort the stronger (and the more permanent) the learning. Practising, rehearsing, repeating, reviewing, redoing: the more cognitive effort, the better the learning. Crosswords generate cognitive effort. Reading, thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, (and even handwriting skills) will all improve using these crosswords. But even better, the students will learn about some of the women who changed their world.
