Aboriginal Peoples: Crossword Puzzle 2

The crossword puzzle below is comprised of words taken from the 'Aboriginal Peoples' articles of our web site. By clicking on the clue number in the Across/Down list below the game, you can open the article from which the clue was derived. The intent is to foster learning by allowing you to read the associated article in the event that you experience difficulty with a particular word. We hope you find the crossword puzzle both enjoyable and educational.

Playing Instructions:

To select a word, click your mouse on any block which comprises that word. The blocks of the selected word are highlighted in yellow and the current block is highlighted in blue. Also, the clue for the selected word will appear at the top of the crossword puzzle.

You can change the orientation (Across/Down) at any time by pressing the space-bar. Letters are entered via your keyboard and the current block will advance by one with each letter you type, until you reach the end of the word. Incorrect letters are displayed in red, while correct letters are shown in black. If you type an incorrect letter, you can either use the backspace key on your keyboard or simply click in that block and re-type the letter.
