This is a great activity for 7th and 8th graders, and I saw it just in time to have an activity for students to do during the afternoons after standardized testing all morning.
On  April 7, 2014Margaret Whisnant answered:
Love your feedback! I also love those 7th and 8th graders. I still miss how they can make you laugh hysterically one second and then grate every nerve the next. They require a REALLY good teacher!! Hope all of you have a successful test day.

This looks like a great activity!! I have middle school ESL students of varied abilities. I made word banks for them to go along with this because I didn't want them to get too frustrated. Having said that, this is an awesome way to bring in phonics, vocabulary and building background knowledge of a wide variety of things....while they think it's "just a puzzle game". Thank you!
