Description

These task cards are easy to use and fun for students! Wander Words is an activity that forces students to use context clues to learn new vocabulary - in this case, vocabulary of explorers. Each word has a sentence clue and a word. Students need to trace the path through the puzzle to decode the word. The letters are in order, but may travel horizontally or vertically in any direction! Students love the challenge, and you will love the way they focus on the words and phrases, learning them without even trying! This is my students' new favorite word learning game!
