FIND THE WORDS
This is a theme puzzle with the subject stated below. Find the listed words
in the grid. (They may run in any direction but always in a straight line.
Some letters are used more than once.) Ring each word as you find it and
when you have completed the puzzle, there will be 11 letters left over. They
spell out the alternative theme of the puzzle.
What's for dinner?
1 What sort of creature is a bonito?
2 What colour is a sapphire?
3 Who played a minister turned farmer in the film "Signs"?
4 What is nankeen?
5 What was the group Hunters and Collectors' final album?
6 Which planet is closer to Earth, Mercury or Venus?
7 Which is the only amphibian that occurs naturally in Australia?
8 Where were the 2002 Commonwealth Games held?
9 Where in Canberra is the Pool of Reflection?
10 What do dugongs eat?
The letters in each vertical column go into the squares directly below them,
but not necessarily in the order they appear. A black square indicates the end
of a word. When you have placed all the letters in their correct squares, you
will be able to read a popular quotation.
