This puzzle activity is a fun way for your students to review vocabulary and reinforce correct spelling. It’s an electronic version of one of those plastic puzzles with the sliding pieces that you move around to unscramble but it’s easier because any box can be moved directly to the open space. Each puzzle consists of from 3 to 6 (student’s option) color coded words with clues chosen from a pool of as many as 100. Points are earned for each correctly unscrambled word. The more words in the puzzle and the longer the words the higher the potential point values. Complete as many puzzles as you can before the time runs out.
Complete instructions for entering your words & clues and playing the game are included. The sample version is fully operational, so download it now and have some fun. This program works in Excel 97 or higher and requires that security levels be set to allow macros.
