These cryptograms are based on the chapter titles from THE MOUSE AND THE MOTORCYCLE. Students decode each cryptogram using their knowledge of spelling, word usage, and, of course, the novel. The first six chapter titles are based on the same code, so if the letter “o” is a “t” in one title, it is also a “t” in the other five titles. The last seven chapters are based on another code.
Note: These puzzles can be challenging, especially to begin with, so teachers may want to provide hints; however, students should be encouraged to use what they learn about spelling and word usage as they go along to solve subsequent puzzles. Download the preview to see two sample puzzles.
