Phrasal Verbs In The Beatles, An Audio Crossword

That’s right. This crossword has audio clues. There is one mp3 file for “Across” clues, and one for “Down” clues. Your task, when listening to the very short clips from Beatles tunes, is to isolate and identify the particle verbs (otherwise known as phrasal verbs). These are multi-word verbs such as “let down”, “take your time”, and “find out.” So for the verb “let down” you will write “DONTLETMEDOWN” – no spaces, no apostrophes. There are also written clues (see the Beatles Phrasal Verb Audio Handout below). If you want to do the crossword online, by yourself, just click on this link: Beatles Audio Crossword Online. If you want to do this activity in the classroom, you can use either of these worksheets. If your class is advanced, with experience in particle verbs, you may let them try using the audio alone.
