The Oxidation number is an apparent charge on a single atom in an ion or molecule in Nitrate the Oxidation number of Nitrogen is +5 and -6 for three oxygen atoms (-2 each) so net charge on Nitrate ion is -1.

Why does nitrogen have a charge of negative 3 when it participates in a chemical reaction?

Nitrogen forms the ion N3-. This is only formed with metals of a low electronegativities. I wouldn't say that nitrogen has a charge of -3 in a chemical reaction- it has an oxidation number in compounds- ranging from -3 in the nitride anion to +5 in the nitrate ion.

What is the cris cross method of aluminium and nitrogen?

The crisscross method uses the oxidation state (valence) of each element or ion. In this example, aluminum (Al) has an oxidation number of 3+. Nitrogen has an oxidation number of 3-. So, there really is no crisscross, because they are both the same, and they would combine to make aluminum nitride, AlN. If, however, you had aluminum, and nitrate ion (NO3^-), the crisscross would be to make the Al subscript a 1 and the NO3- subscript 3 to give Al(NO3)3.
