how to create a crossword

Unread postby juhditco » 25 Oct 2013, 20:32

what is the easiest way to build a crossword. sometimes we need to create an activity for the pupils and a cross world is on of them. but I find it difficult to create a cross word and it is taking me a long time.
any suggestion would be appreciated.

Hey,
My name is Shirley and I'm a student teacher.
To create a crossword you can either use Excel or do it by hand. I like working with Excel so I usually do it there, if you don’t get along with that program you can always Google "crossword maker". I found a few sites that were pretty good, you only have to type the words and the clues and the program does the rest.
I hope that was helpful.
