This acrostic puzzle reviews and reinforces 46 pieces of laboratory equipment commonly used in upper middle and high school science labs. As the student answers each question, certain numbered letters are used to decode 2 science riddles/puns. The jokes are corny, but fun! Choose to use the traditional printable version, or the paperless, digital Google Apps version. When students need review and reinforcement on the content we are teaching, it helps if the review is in a game format. Students are much more likely to participate and engage when the review is fun. This puzzle is perfect for classwork, homework, and/or substitute teacher folders.

Both Printable and Digital Google Apps Versions are included in this resource. This resource is perfect for traditional classroom settings, distance learning, or for students in 1:1 classrooms.
