    [Crossword Puzzel]
    1. Why did Jack need to sell the cow? Why did Jack make a bad trade?
    2. Why did Jack climb the bean stalk?
    3. Jack stole gold from the giant, then a hen, then a harp. Was what Jack did good or bad?
    4. Jack woke up one day and discovered a large beanstalk climbing into the sky. He went away without telling his mother and then took things from strangers he did not know. What would you do differently if you were Jack?
    Other Fun Things
    1. Jack had many adventures in the story. Draw a picture of Jack climbing the bean stalk, or draw another scene from the tale.
    2. Jack traded his cow for beans which were thrown into the ground and grew. You can grow your own bean sprouts by taking a glass (one you can see through) and some paper towel. Put the paper towel in the glass and put the beans between the glass and the towel (so you can see them). Then pour some water in the glass and put it in a dark place. Check it everyday to make sure the paper towel is still wet. It will quickly begin to grow.
