Update:  At the new school where I'm currently working at now, they've got a lot of really creative ideas for puzzles and crosswords.  One idea is to paste the questions around the room, instead of on the paper.  So something I've been doing lately with these crosswords is cutting off the questions, and photocopying it with just the crossword blanks.  Then the students have to walk around the room to find the questions.  (Because getting this crossword correct relies on exact phrasing of the answer, I also will put the answers up around the room at different points.)  This works either as just a way to get the students to walk around the room, or it can also be adopted to a running dictation, where one student sits at their desk, and the other student runs around the room to find the questions and report back.

Below are the questions and answers I used for the first crossword puzzle.  Also at Google Docs Here.  Also a PowerPoint presentation I use to set up the activity, and then to check the answers at the end, is on Google Docs Here.
